    Why is the user experience between iPhone and WM10 so different regarding Google Websites? The graphics and the UI and how the user interacts with the website is so rich in an iPhone and so poor and basic in a WM10 mobile. Is it about the browser that doesn't recognise all the features of the website? Is it about the OS that doesn't recognise all the features of the website? Or is it about Google that locks features in WM10 mobiles?

    I am talking about the Websites of Google (search, maps etc) and not about the lack of applications.

    I haven't used iPhone, but the experience in edge and on any Android browser (including Chrome) is not that different. Perhaps with old IE there were such issues but edge works fine these days.
    And no doubt Google hates Microsoft, but even they are not as vindictive as to cripple their services just to screw with people using windows phone.

    Comparing mobile browsers is fine. But on iPhone and Android, Google apps have a lot of functionality that we are missing because we are just using the browser. Things like searching while playing on Youtube, proper zooming on Maps, Google Hangouts, etc.

    As far as vindictiveness is concerned, I won't speak on behalf of a corporation's conscience, but I recall years ago when Google refused to develop a Youtube app for WP8. When MS decided to do one themselves, Google vetoed it bigtime. (Anyone who remembers that app would tell you it was pretty amazing.) Google insisted that it should be developed purely using a method that even they didn't use on their native app. Around that time, the few Google apps that were on the WP store were gone.

    To put things in perspective, lawsuits between Google (and its OEMs) and Apple were still ongoing round the world. Today there seems to be peace between the two "elephants" while ants like me are punished because we chose a phone that wasn't theirs in any way. Whether this action was vindictive or vindicated, in the end the "little guy" was the big loser.

    In order to get web pages to display correctly, Edge browser spoofs its user agent string to disguise itself as Chrome or Safari. The results aren't good, pages don't display correctly, and some sites will tell you to download their app from the Google Play store, because they think you are an Android user.

    I tried using news.google.com today on Edge browser and the experience was horrible. Stuttering and skipping, scrolling was inconsistent and articles loaded dead slow. Switched to flipboard news and all was well.
