Windows Both Mozilla and Google have expressed concern over Windows 8. Microsoft's next big operating system release restricts access to certain APIs and technologies browsers need - only making them available to Internet Explorer. Looking at the facts, it would seem Mozilla and Google have a solid case - coincidentally, the responses on the web are proof of the slippery slope we're on regarding ownership over our own machines.

Last I'd heard, Apple bans rendering engines other than the Safari-provided WebKit on iOS, so you can make a browser, but unless it relies on external servers to do its rendering, it's little more than a new frontend on Safari Mobile.


Exactly my point. So in essence - alternative browsers are banned. Opera's approach is just a workaround (not such a good solution), but it's not what we are talking about.
