Editorial In response to Jean-Louis Glassee's article "The OS Doesn't Matter..." I wrote quite simply: the future of the browser wars is he who integrates with the OS best. This phrase came from my article lambasting Microsoft's use of HTML for their IE9 jump lists, which caused quite a stir. In the wave of ever increasing web browser capability, the operating system is going to matter to web users more than it ever has before.

OS matters because of the OS, not because of the browser only. Windows will not gain much advantage with hardware acceleration - it is available on all modern OSes, including Linux and MacOSX.

BTW, Firefox team is also focused on hardware acceleration, see for example
