There was a discussion this week about Mozilla deciding to partner with Adobe to included DRM for streaming media in future versions of Firefox. This would allow services such as Netflix to stop depending on plugins like Flash or Silverlight, because those features would be built into the browser. Mozilla has long been a critic of DRM, however they relented because they feared users would abandon Firefox if it stopped working for streaming services such as Netflix. Others argued that if we just educated users about the evils of DRM, they would stay. I don’t believe that’s a realistic scenario myself, but as Firefox users, what do you think? Would you stay with Firefox even if it became more difficult or impossible to use for certain paid streaming services?
