Is Microsoft® forcing other browsers out of Windows® 8?
Two major browsers Firefox and Chrome are being developed currently to fit in the new packaging of Windows 8. Metro interface is something that’s forcing developers to come up with a new version of their applications that can be used in Windows 8.
A significant market share could be the prize here. If Internet Explorer is the only browser that’s available to users in Windows 8, Firefox and Chrome can forget about market domination. Mozilla already finished the prototype of its Firefox for Windows 8. We have no substantial news about Chrome for Windows 8.
Microsoft has introduced deck system in the selection of Browsers in Windows 8. If you enable one of the versions of IE as the default browser, the tile would show up on the metro interface. When the default browser is changed to Firefox or Chrome, which for now work only on the Legacy Desktop version of Windows 8 Consumer Preview) IE tile disappears on the Metro Interface and you cannot browse in that interface.
Is this a new way to force people into using IE? To know more about this, read the complete story here.
