While we previously reported to a former Microsoft Edge developer who claimed that the company's relocation to Chromium was caused by Google's browser breaks, we are now at a point where we can clarify a few things.
However, the developer is now known for being a trainee at Microsoft's Edge development team and speculated in his requirements rather than being part of the development path decisions, and two, thanks to a response from Google to The Verge, we are now concerned with The real reason YouTube worked badly on Edge.
According to a recent reply from a YouTube spokeswoman directly related to previous Microsoft interns requirements,
"YouTube does not add code designed to defeat optimizations in other browsers and works fast to fix bugs when they are discovered. We regularly collaborate with other browser vendors through standard bodies, the Web Platform Test Project, the Open Source Chromium Project, and more to improve the browser's interoperability. "
While the YouTube response should be a fine bow to this topic, the fact remains Mozilla and Edge developers had to go back to scripts to improve their browsing experience with YouTube videos and there have been no comments from both companies if the issue has been solved.
For its part, Microsoft's Edge team has been relatively quiet on the subject and keeping the distance from previous intern's requirements with its recent comments to The Verge, "Google has been a helpful partner and we look forward to the journey while working on the future for Microsoft Edge. "
The kindly friendly response from Microsoft can signal its ambivalence to old EdgeHTML development and focus on the new chrome-driven future.
