Mozilla has just unveiled latest version of its flagship browser – Friefox 38. The all new Firefox 38 includes some of the most stunning changes/improvements so far including the support for DRM and some UI tweaks.
Here is the list of some of the most elegant changes/improvements in the latest version – Firefox 38:
- Support for DRM technology – The DRM technology will allow the content wrapped in Digital Rights Management (DRM) to be played within HTML5 video tag.
- Integration with Adobe Content Decryption Module (CDM) to playback DRM-wrapped content
- Introduction to remove the CDM from your copy of Firefox.
- Support for Ruby annotation for both desktop and mobile versions.
- Ruby is essentially extra text attached to the main text for indicating the pronunciation or meaning of the corresponding characters — adding the feature to the browser means users no longer need to install add-ons like HTML Ruby.
- Major UI improvements to its Android version.
- Tab-based preferences
- And many other changes including security fixes.
In the release note of Firefox 38, Mozilla made following comment in order to support its release of DRM support:
“We are enabling DRM in order to provide our users with the features they require in a browser and allow them to continue accessing premium video content. We don’t believe DRM is a desirable market solution, but it’s currently the only way to watch a sought-after segment of content.”
