Windows Both Mozilla and Google have expressed concern over Windows 8. Microsoft's next big operating system release restricts access to certain APIs and technologies browsers need - only making them available to Internet Explorer. Looking at the facts, it would seem Mozilla and Google have a solid case - coincidentally, the responses on the web are proof of the slippery slope we're on regarding ownership over our own machines.

Apple bans all other browers on iOS? So why have I got three other browsers (Murcury, Atomic Lite and Opera Mini) on my iPhone as well as Safari?


Because they're based on apple's webkit engine (except Opera but it renders the pages on opera's serves and then send them to the phone). Apple don't allow non-webkit browsers on iOS.
