For Mozilla

Stuart Langridge:

Mozilla have stood on principle in the past, by refusing to implement H.264 format video. It made no difference. […] There’s always been an edge of, well, they’re doing the right thing which means that I don’t have to. Firefox should stand on principle here and refuse to play DRMed videos… but of course I’m not going to stop using DRMed video, I’ll just use Safari for that. […] If you dislike Mozilla doing this (which I do, too), then where’s the outcry against Apple and Microsoft and Google for doing the same thing? Where’s the outcry against them for doing it first? Mozilla helps keep the web open for us, but in return we have to help keep the web open for Mozilla. And we aren’t.

Update: we have moved away from a priopriety plugin from Adobe by means of a proprietary binary blob from Adobe.
