Re: Mozilla Firefox and DRM - the last drop for me!

To go back to DRM and HTML5, I really don't know... but it seems to me that there will come a choice between browsers that support DRM, and have "full" functionality, and browsers that don't implement it, which, I guess, means that they won't work with DRM content... Though this is just my speculating, I don't know for sure. hmm

I suspect you're speculation is where it will end up, and probably only a tiny minority of old holdouts using the non DRM browsers too...

As to the off topic bit.. there's no practical purpose whatsoever voting in EU elections, the elected officials have no power or influence, only the UNelected ones do. The organisation merely gets in the way of democracy.  Without it a national movement somewhere may result in national action on a topic like say DRM... Who knows if one nation acts others may follow their lead. With the EU, that national movement gets stifled in Brussels, and the example never gets set.  Yes I wasted my time and voted, but only so I have a right to complain that what happens isn't what I voted for....


Blessed is he who expecteth nothing, for he shall not be disappointed...

Isn`t there anybody able or willing to tell me what we will have to expect when drm comes into the use of html5? will i have to start another thread on this?

my knowledge of this is just about firm enough to know that i don't want it, but not firm enough to explain it (to others).
there's this page:
http://www.defectivebydesign.org/what_i … management
there's also a guide for drm-free living, and after a few clicks i get this:
http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Category/ … eb-browser
but it looks a little bleak, until you press "further results", which brings gnu icecat to the top. not quite sure how icecat differs from iceweasel?

are there any statements on all this from foss developers/community?
and what about webkit (-based browsers)?

not sure i understand your comment.
luakit is webkit based -
my question should have been: is webkit itself (which, afaiu, webkit based browsers use without modifications) 100% Foss and non-DRM?
If so, do certain browsers (chrom*?) add some uncool drm stuff to that?

sorry i understood luakit as an additional but seperated ~kit.
As far as i found out now the drm-part will be included in the handling of html5 when it comes to media-playback. if i`d be right there, it would be of no importance whether webkit or anything else is used, would it?
