That is the problem.

The browser is not an operating system, I already have one where it is running on top of.

All my years of consulting with web projects just make me shake my head every time I see spaghetti hacks of HTML/JavaScript/CSS trying to bend browsers into something native applications enjoy since the mid 90's.

With IE6 and IE7 market share dropping and Webkit popularity on mobile, there are a whole lot of stuff that don't need hacks anymore.

There are always differences between platforms, but usually isn't differences like small screen vs. large screen and mouse/keyboard vs. touchscreen.

Those are not hacks, that is because you are running on multiple platforms.

Is that the new way to speak about Webkit versions?
