Well there goes Chrome…DRM is the fastest way to get users to stop using Chrome…


#3

Will that be forced into Chromium based browsers as well, maybe a good solid fork is needed


#4

Question, what is the best alternative to Chrome?

I have always used Firefox EME Free version, DRM imo is a piece of garbage.


#8

Omg, To hear Windows 10 Edge has DRM another reason yet again for me not to upgrade ever to Windows 10 lol.


#9

As a consumer we should have rights over our technology many us spend a lot of money on this stuff not to mention blood an sweat.

We own the license Producy Key not the actual software itself outright.

One story doesn’t tell the complete story that is about device not the Browser. Til there is more then it just one part.


#13

More infoDRM, EME via Windows 10 Platform Edge Browser Also

coolcolors, Valid point about purchasing license Producy Key however one must still buy or build the hardware to install the OS as an end user while I agree it’s not my software because I bought a license Producy Key if money and when money is exchanged some rights should be present but I know you will probably go on about how I didn’t create the software, and blah, blah.

Digital Rights Management isn’t consumer friendly thus why I hate it. :slight_smile:

@coolcolors, just because people agree to these nasty licenses, that doesn’t make these licenses OK. People are only agreeing to these licenses because they have to. Many people rely on Windows, MS Office, MacOS, or whatever else, and can’t easily transition to some other software. Thus, companies like Microsoft have never hesitated in taking advantage of these people. After all, why would Microsoft hesitate? It’s not like they have a conscience to stop them.

Least one forgets we all talk about free markets so this is the price we pay whether or not we like it. Until there is someone can truly make a Open Source O/S not linux there to much infighting to be a real use from them-then and only then will MS see the light. But I will reiterate this is a Free Market and Capitalism so don’t like don’t use. I take my cause to using hosts blockers and restricting what calls home to tell them F9797 u and keep on computing… :cool:
