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.

Well, even Camino isn't completely native. It integrates fairly well, but it too suffers from the long-standing firefox bug that prevents a Mac from going to sleep if you leave it idle. This is why I stick to Safari, because it doesn't have this problem. With Safari, I can set my MacBook Pro down and forget about it, and it'll go to sleep automatically. With Firefox and Camino, it'll run the battery down. (And I have one of the 2007-2008 MPBs that ruins batteries, so mine just suddenly powers off at some random point when it gets below 20%, and I lose work.)
