Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

Opera Mini is as much of a web browser as a web app is equivalent to native software.

(And I suggest all people who sincerely believe that web apps are a proper replacement to native code to use Chrome OS as their main operating system)
