Installing Flash does not count as "just works"... and Firefox does not
support EME on Linux, and it won't support it for a while. I tried it
week with both the release version, and nightly, and neither had EME
And given Linux current user base, I don't think that's a reason that makes Chrome
Chrome is the most popular browser for pretty much the same reasons that Windows is the
most popular operating system. It has nothing to do with "just works" moments,
which anyway are different for most users and hard to identify their impact. For instance
cutting off third party trackers just works on Firefox. It is important for me, but does
it matter for the majority of the users? Unknown.
