    So I've just recently got a Surface. And I start too see the lack of official apps, but what are the best alternatives for "the-most-used" apps. I mean for facebook, twitter, youtube, instagram etc. and what is the best browser available?

    You have a lot of alternatives, like:
    Youtube
    - Youtube RT
    - Prime Tube
    - Youtube +
    - Youtube Player

    Instagram
    - Milligram
    - Tabstagram
    - Piktr
    - Instametrogram
    - Metrogram
    Facebook
    - Facebook Pro
    - Facebook friends
    - Feed for facebook
    - Facebook Touch

    Twitter
    - Metrotwit
    - Rowi
    - tMetro

    Browser
    - Is the Mozilla one out?
    - Chrome?

    In my opinion.
    Youtube: Primetube (until Metrotube comes out)
    Facebook: FB Touch
    Twitter: Metrotwit
    Instagram: Metrogram
    Browser: IE but if you don't like it for "flash" limitations well Chrome is better

    Don't bet on seeing a Firefox or Chrome browser anytime soon given Google/Mozilla's litigation and/or threatened litigation. Google wanted access to the Windows RT desktop and Microsoft has made it clear that 1) any version of Chrome or Firefox would be Metro/Modern and 2) they will not give anyone access to the desktop. Google and Firefox have since disavowed interest in developing for RT and have claimed it will be a failure. Personally I have always thought Google really wanted access to the desktop so that they could steal more of the ARM OS code or override OS security locks. In a rare example of me agreeing with Apple, I do think intellectual theft and data harvesting (and then convincing people their privacy rights are irrelevant) are the only things Google does well. Mozilla is a Google puppet since it is Google money that keeps them afloat, so whatever Google wants, they will probably continue to support....

    There is no Chrome version for RT.
