Netflix uses Microsoft's

Netflix uses Microsoft's Silverlight for now.

This is the solution for now. It's running Wine + Microsoft's Silverlight + Windows Firefox. But it's made to look like its own app.

Netflix has recently added HTML5 to its options page, so they are working on a solution. Unfortunately the solution requires DRM be added to the open HTML standard, but it is a subscription service after all.
