FireFox for Win8 ?

Anyone use FireFox for Windows8 ? I'm just wondering whether I should upgrade, using IE10 causes to much switching.

BTW I have Windows8 for three days, and I can fly around it, I'm even better with Windows7, win, win for me

I'm currently using FF 16.0.2 on Windows 8 Pro RTM and it works great.

I'm using Firefox Nightly on Windows 8... actually, it's the very same profile I was using a week ago on Windows 7.

Running superbly.

From the looks of it almost a year from now, I suspect because that is when they hope most people will be on Windows8. Can anyone with confidence give me the green light without problems to run FireFox 19, after upgrading to Windows8, FireFox 15 at random will crash, it's odd. I could upgrade to FireFox 16, but I figure why not just jump directly to the FireFox 19 which is associated with Windows8, bypassing Windows8 from always calling IE10.
