Here is a quick summary to get you started:
|Browser||Windows on Arm||Arm Linux support|
Windows on Arm runs native ARM64 applications, but can also emulate 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x64 applications. Emulation is slower than native and shortens battery life, but may provide functionality you need.
The primary functional issue for browsers on Arm is DRM (digital rights management). DRM is required to play certain video content from streaming services such as Netflix. To test if your browser has DRM check the DRM stream test .
Edge and Firefox are good native browsers with DRM support for Windows on Arm. There are no easy DRM solutions for Arm Linux.
Please share your experiences with browsers on Arm by submitting a GitHub issue or a GitHub Pull Request to add additional browsers.
