    resolution of Netflix movies (not series) is limited to 960x540 which is half of full hd in each dimension.
    Will this change someday?

    Well, we can't say anything on behalf of Netflix. AnyStream takes what it is given. Besides, not all movies are 960x540.

    This is a browser issue, just tested with my Mac (Dual Boot MacOS & Win10):
    Safari gets 1920x1080 while
    Firefox and Chrome only get a poor 960x540 resolution
    these browsers are in now way less capable than Safari.
    I also tried with Edge@Win10 but the shift-ctl-alt-D doesn't work with Edge; I have no idea why.
    Firefox@Win10 does also only 960x540.
    I suppose Netflix has 2 categories for the browsers:
    Firefox and Chrome are "bad" browsers, Safari (and probably Edge) are "good" browsers.
    If this doesn't change I will not buy Anystream and I'll cancel my Netflix subscription

    Without diving into technical details - AnyStream is not a browser. We ask - Netflix decides what to give what not to give.

    OK then:
    Goodbye AnyStream
    GoodBye Netflix (I currently pay for HD quality and only get SD with my favourite browser @ my favourite OS - Linux)
