Netflix users are only too familiar with plugins that demand to be updated. All that is about to change. The online video service has started streaming in HTML5 in Safari on OS X Yosemite. The company says it has been working with Apple to implement the premium video extensions in Safari, which allow playback of video content in the browser without the use of plugins.
In addition to Safari on OS X Yosemite, plugin-free playback is also available in IE 11 on Windows 8.1.
