Mozilla sets end of Firefox for OS X Leopard

Gregg Keizer | Aug. 23, 2012
Mozilla will drop support for Apple's OS X 10.5, or Leopard, after it ships Firefox 16 in October, according to company developers.

"This preview will include primary browser UI for navigation and tabs, and will be delivered as a combined classic + Metro browser," said Bondy. "I believe there is a Q4 goal for a beta release as well."

Windows 8, which is available now to some Microsoft customers, hits retail on Oct. 26.

Mozilla was the first Microsoft rival to announce it would create a combination desktop and Metro-style browser to compete with Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) on Windows 8.

Google later joined the race, and in June beat Mozilla to the preview punch by releasing an in-progress browser that runs in the Metro user interface (UI).
