Microsoft Will Not Allow Third-Party Browser with Full Capabilities for Windows 8 Tablets
Windows 8 for tablets will not allow Firefox and Chrome with Full Capabilities
Microsoft has started their squeamishness. Now the bad news is that, apparently, the latest version of Microsoft. Windows 8 for tablet will not allow Firefox, Chrome and other third-party browser with full functionality on mobile devices. The operating system appears to be much needed revolution Microsoft Windows and not to continue losing favor with a growing competitor like Mac OS X and Apple. Should Microsoft’s position regarding third-party browsers on Windows 8 tablets is restrictive, it would be an issue. On the one hand would be copying Apple’s strategy, which only allows Safari on their mobile devices, and on the other hand, I think there are many people who think like me: I would not like the only option out Internet Explorer browser, much as improve the version that comes with Windows 8.
If we had a tablet with Windows 8, what we would do with only one viable option: the battered Internet Explorer. Mozilla is concerned about this possible decision by Microsoft. Google also said he shared the concerns of Mozilla on the subject. Mashable also has contacted Microsoft to find out the company’s official position on the matter. But he says a blog of publication, a Microsoft spokesperson has referred them to an official post about Windows on ARM, it does not solve any of the concerns that both Mozilla and Google externship.
In any case, just for the “detail”, I’d rather find another alternative to buying a tablet and Android because android is good, it allows third party browsers. Leaving aside this issue and mobile devices, I still say that Windows 8 is a very interesting option. As I have already installed the “Windows 8 Consumers preview” on my computer, and I have to say it’s a change for the better, even when the trial still has major flaws. Furthermore, if Microsoft implements a policy of restriction on third-party browsers like Chrome and Firefox, most of people will only use android tablets. The desktop version of Windows 8 does allow browsers like Firefox and Chrome without any problems. Finally hope Windows 8 for tablets will allow Firefox and Chrome with Full Capabilities if Microsoft changes its mind.
