Hah, well, well - the issue of APIs raises its head once again, this time outside of Oracle/Google context! Win32 APIs are only available to Internet Explorer. Of course, a big difference between Windows and Java is that Windows isn't open source, so the issue of APIs is a bit different here than in the Oracle v Google case. Also, the complaints only apply to Windows RT which is for ARM based devices. So yeah, Mozilla (and Google in the context of Chrome) has a point, but it is not as valid as it first sounds, in my opinion. IE will have privileges on SOME devices that other browsers will not have.
