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.

I can agree OS integration is a key for success, but I can't agree it's the primary key. I'm pretty sure some web browsers offers more features than others, and that's what matters for me, these features are present in any OS and that's what I like.

We can conclude unique features are the way of getting users, but the fact is actually web browsers are used because of their company ads or because some are bundled to the OS from factory and many people don't realize others exists.
