OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2009, so it's been two years since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. In those two years, a lot has changed. I will also explain why in the few cases that OSNews does host video, I will host it in WebM.

But it doesn't really matter. The default way of accessing material in iOS is through the dedicated app, not through the browser. You may like this or you may not, but that just is the way it is.

Wasn't that true in the beginning of the iphone era because virtually no site had a dedicated mobile-friendly version? Things have changed and evolved since then and the usage patterns have probably changed as well. With the current trend of moving things to the web and the shift to mobile browsing, it would be weird to drop an app now for a (number of current) platform(s) when one can tailor a mobile version that would work on any (old, current, and possibly future) portable/mobile device. Just saying...
