      Or... never grow up, and live the glamorous life of Richard Stallman. Did you know he once got laid? Hard to believe. The guy looks like a bum, acts like a bum, talks like a bum, smells like a bum. Apparently he was lucky enough to wet his dick before he got old. Of course now nobody will touch him.

      When the DRM's entire purpose is to -restrict- access, at least the word change is more honest.

      Yes, "grow up" by using the terms other people want you to use and how they want you to use them, even if they are misleading and/or propaganda.

      Grow up means it's immature to not let megacorps abuse you like they desire?
      Or does it just mean being a indifferent worker drone that is a good citizen and does what the TV tells them too?

        It seems most people's definition of "maturity" includes being a complacent consumer whore who never rocks the boat and has no principles.

    So what are the best ideas to sideline this DRM-in-the-browser thing?

      Install Pale Moon. It doesn't use it. Then don't use websites that don't work. If you're feeling particularly energetic, complain to the website owners about that.

      Turn to piracy. Seriously. And don't feel like you're being naughty and cheating those poor starving artists who worked sooo hard. Yes, much piracy is illegal. But unethical and immoral? No. There are other, better, fairer ways to fund art. We will get there eventually, but sooner is better, and we'll get there sooner by keeping the pressure up. The worst thing you can do is accept this ongoing attempt to take our natural rights, and believe their propaganda that learning is stealing.

      Many large corporate interests are behind this push to ram DRM down everyone's throats. And to end Network Neutrality. It's not just the MAFIAA. It's part of a very big, unfair, and wrong idea that information can be owned and controlled, and its distribution restricted, that it can be treated as if it is a scarce and precious resource no different than a material good. Big Pharma is one of the major industries pushing this thinking. Also on board are automotive manufacturers, including makers of tractors, appliance manufacturers, and many businesses in the technology sector. Ink jet printer cartridge lockout, anyone? How about word processor and office file format lockout? How about the average smart TV being programmed to allow access to only a very small, select part of the Internet when it could easily browse any web site? Most businesses think they stand to benefit by locking down info, and back this push for more DRM. If they get their way on this issue, the Internet itself may become locked down.

        I think net neutrality is worse because even if movies are of no interest it still matters. And as for movies I'm actually quite bored of Hollywood storylines which too often seem to be Cliches and special effects stacked onto eachother. Some movies are interesting but they are far between such that the effort to grab the occasional one-off on the big bay of bad ships is no big deal.

      They have lost focus on making the best browser there is with a lot of annoying "features" sidetracks and politically correct management. Meritocracy please.
