One of the (silly) reasons I've continued to run GNOME 3 under Ubuntu instead of switching to Debian is a hesitance to move from Firefox to IceWeasel.

With this EME/DRM stuff, for the first time, I no longer feel that hesitance. A trademark dispute is one thing... but DRM is another.

100% with you. This is exactly what I currently do, exactly why I'm doing it, and IceWeasel and Debian exactly are what I'll be using soon, too. shame on mozilla.

Not so long ago Wikipedia considered supporting proprietary video formats, but when the community freaked out they listened.

But then the w3c and now Firefox?  What is it with these people?  

If *I* can understand why they shouldn't incorporate proprietary software, why don't they?
