Microsoft might be limiting your browser choices for Windows 8 tablets
By now, the procedure taken by almost everyone is using Internet Explorer to download your preferred third party browser. That might just change, however, in Windows 8 according to a blog post by Mozzila.
In the post they explain that on ARM devices, the only browser allowed will be Internet Explorer while in Windows Classic mode. No Chrome, Opera, or Firefox, folks. But read that again: Windows Classic mode. Google also shares these concerns.
But only Windows Classic? That means that third party browsers will be experienced in the Metro UI. Microsoft attorney David Heiner explains that the reason for this is that only Microsoft can properly address the issues of security, and ARM needs. Sounds a lot like the nineties, Microsoft.
So watch out for some probably-incoming legal disputes for Windows 8 RT edition.
