Microsoft® bans Mozilla® Firefox browser on Windows® 8
Mozilla, the maker of Firefox web browser, has accused the software giant Microsoft Corporation of hindering its ability to distribute the software on some devices being designed keeping in mind the next version of the Windows operating system named Windows 8.
According to a tech portal, while Windows 8 desktop and laptop consumers are unaffected, the ban would affect users of Windows 8 on ARM devices, making up most of the tablet market.
“They’re trying to make a new version of their operating system which denies their users choice, competition, and innovation,” commented Harvey Anderson, Mozilla’s general counsel. “Making IE the only browser on that platform is a complete return to the digital dark ages when there was only one browser on the Windows platform.” Anderson has detailed his concerns in a blog post.
It is not for the first time that Microsoft will be entangled into a browser trouble, as the software giant was found guilty of squeezing out Netscape and other browsers in the 1990s.
