Mozilla adding DRM to Firefox, but they are not happy about it
Mozilla is a company that has prided itself on releasing products that embrace an "open web" with few to no restrictions on how to access content. Today, the company announced that it will make an exception for its Firefox browser and enable it to use the W3C Encrypted Media Extensions.
In a blog post, Mozilla says that W3C EME allowed web browsers to play videos in HTML5 that have a Content Decryption Module (CDM). This would allow the browser to play videos on sites such as Netflix or Hulu but still have a DRM system in place.
