I admit it - when I saw the article on a ModernUI version of Firefox being available, I was wondering if it would actually be usable by anyone short of a developer.

Here's the surprise - while it's not default-quality (still, I don't see ModernUI IE10 as default-browser-quality yet, either), it's genuinely usable.

I'm actually posting this from the ModernUI version of Nightly (18.0.1a) and there are no updates yet (as of the date-time group of this post - October 3rd at 1016 AM EDT).

While IE10 remains my default, with Waterfox my first alternative, Nightly in ModernUI form is going to be around a bit.
