From the Netflix blog today:
If you’re in Apple’s Mac Developer Program, or soon the OS X Beta Program, you can install the beta version of OS X Yosemite. With the OS X Yosemite Beta on a modern Mac, you can visit Netflix.com today in Safari and watch your favorite movies and TV shows using HTML5 video without the need to install any plugins.
This might be one of my favorite details coming out of Yosemite so far. I’ve been waiting for the day I can uninstall Silverlight for good. Netflix is claiming another 2 hours of battery while streaming in 1080p on a MacBook Air, which is pretty impressive.
It turns out Netflix already uses HTML5 for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1, so that has gone from being useless to being my Netflix app.
