DRM added to HTML5 video
A controversial feature is that IE11 implements DRM technology for HTML5 video. Called Encrypted Media Extensions (EME), it lets the browser play protected media from premium streaming services, such as Netflix, without needing to go through a separate plug-in that you would have to install, such as Adobe Flash or Microsoft Silverlight. (EME is backed by Microsoft and Netflix, and also Google, So Chrome and Chrome OS include this scheme, too.)
