Windows Vista PDC Build Running Firefox!

Here’s a shot of Start.com, the fancy new dynamic home page/portal, running in Firefox 1.0.6 on the PDC build of Windows Vista. Notice the transparent/glass window borders. This is the first Vista build with that graphical bit if eye candy turned on, as far as I know.

I couldn’t install Firefox on this demo box, because I wasn’t running as Admin (I attended a great session today on User Account Protection, and how admin tasks like installing software will be handled in Vista). Even without being able to install, I simply downloaded PortableFirefox and ran that. I even left a shortcut on the desktop saying “Try Firefox! See how it looks on Vista!” Wonder how long that will last… 😉

    Beta 1 had it turned on.

    The PDC build is the second generally released build to have it.

    Keep up the good work, love the blog.
