Netflix Announces Expected Official Firefox Compatibility For Linux

Despite the fact that users of operating systems such as Windows or macOS can use Netflix in any modern web browser without any problem, so far Linux users are forced to use Google Chrome, the only one with official support from Netflix. After a long wait, Netflix has announced official compatibility with Firefox for Linux.

It is a most interesting novelty, especially if we consider that there are many Linux users who prefer to use Firefox instead of Google Chrome. In addition, for a time it was even necessary to use a specific version of Chrome that was supported by Encrypted Media Extension (EME), which made the task even more difficult.

Despite the various unofficial tricks to use Firefox with the platform streaming, the fact of being able to use it officially facilitate the process and improve the user experience. In fact, it is important to note that there is no need to install any plugin additional to access the platform (only HTML5 technology is used).

As echoed from Netflix, Firefox's compatibility with the platform is available from this very moment, so all those who are using any Linux distribution You can access Netflix using Firefox from this moment.
