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.

Interestingly, why Windows on ARM raises concerns about browsers censorship, while the same thing on iOS (Apple essentially bans all other browsers on iOS with their SDK license) doesn't raise concerns?

There is actually a huge difference between an OS that was created with such limitations, and their clients "don't give a sh**" to this, and one OS that is trying to make this move after years of monopoly, to break the "rivals" at the user application level...
