Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

WebKit is a de facto standard. It does not matter if you like that or not.

A decade ago IE6 had a similar stand. Unlike IE WebKit is at least continues driven forward, fixes issues rather then turning them into standards every web-developer and browser has to deal with and its FLOSS with lots of different implementations (Safari, Chrome, Adobe AIR, etc) and has an open development process. Even Microsoft could join and integrate WebKit into IE. WebKit is the de facto industry standard and that is way better for the internet, for all of us, then what we had with the IE-lockin the decade before.
