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.

For a site that is named 'OSNews', confusing the UI with the OS is a serious problem.

You could have said what you said with a single phrase:

"The more a web app looks like a native app the better".

Besides the UI though, the OS has little to do with the web. In fact, it is irrelevant. You could run a web app on a Commodore 64, provided that the interface is nicely looking and simple to use/understand.
