After years of insisting that DRM in HTML wouldn't block open source implementations, Google says it won't support open source implementations

@StephenJudge Cool, then "open source" should stop caring about proprietary crap support… The problem with "open source" is that devs are constantly supporting proprietary crap and centralized silos to "attract new users and gain market-share", instead of caring about how to prevent the software/DRM/copyright industry from doing more damage…

@devnull @StephenJudge The way I handle it in Odysseus is I do feel the need to make my software work with the mainstream silos (exception made for "streaming" sites), but I take care care to avoid some of the dynamics I see leading to them. And I say "hey! Check these alternatives out".

Yes I like complaining about the bloat involved in working with the mainstream web, but thankfully I don't have to touch it directly.
