Netflix "just works" on Firefox too (due to EME support). Spotify
is flash. If you install flash-plugin it works on Firefox too.
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 this week with both the release version, and nightly, and neither
had EME working.

bothering to make it usable except through their own addons? I for one
have not bought into the wonderfullness of drm, or the "just works"
philosophy. Some of my community has, but I have not. No matter how good
a piece of software is, if I can't use it, it might as well be a black
screen. My two scents, I'll shut up now, I've beaten this dead horse
