+ - Say Goodbye to Browser Choice?->

Submitted by plawson
plawson (73164) writes "c|net offers an in-depth discussion of the browser's future, making the case that "new mobile devices threaten to stifle the competitive vigor of the market for Web browsers on PCs." Given the vertical integration of many mobile systems, the article predicts that "... the only opportunity you'll get to truly change browsers is when your two-year smartphone contract expires..." The trade offs are security and performance. Web pages that rely on JavaScript and JIT will be big losers. How important is browser choice on a smartphone or tablet compared with a PC?"
