Man On A Mission: People still use Flash? Why on earth?
van1ty: Isn't youtube run on flash?God knows when I have a new computer, youtube won't work unless I install a new flash player.
23FPB23: The DRM on this browser is broke, as far as Amazon is concerned. Uninstalled, cleaned, all that. One you get to any protected content, it stops. You can watch the logos for the companies involved, then DRM kicks in, usually around 25 seconds, then BLAM!I don't use Silverlight cuz Silverlight makes me unplug my VGA before it'll let me pipe Amazon to TV via HDMI.
farkeruk: Look, you little fark. If you don't like what Mozilla are doing then get an army of Richard Stallman types together and fork Firefox to have a non-DRM version. And you can sit around watching people's DRM-free Minecraft videos while I watch Pacific Rim.DRM is out there. It's in Flash and Silverlight that people already use as plugins. This just makes it more native to the browser. Publishers that hate DRM can choose to not switch it on. Publishers that want it, can.GIVE ME MY BREAD AND BRING BACK THE CIRCUS!
skozlaw: I'll remember that when you're bemoaning the fact that the DRM you had no control over and nobody was legally allowed to inspect screws you over in a year or two. Hopefully Pacific Rim was good enough to make up for all the inevitable security and privacy problems the unaccountable software it required introduces.
farkeruk: Considering I've been running Flash ... for years ... and I have to trust the manufacturers who stake their name on their software.
farkeruk: I have a PC to do things with and it's full of proprietary software and I have to trust the manufacturers who stake their name on their software. Works pretty nice.
thetrenchcoat: Isn't it required for someone to mention Pale Moon by now? http://www.palemoon.org/
