    Anyone noticing some improvements in the Browser's performance? So far... Mine only annoys me by not wanting to open Youtube in Desktop mode (always going to Mobile mode)... It's ... annoying.

    Page rendering seems slight faster. Try this....type YouTube. It surely takes you to the mobile YouTube. Now click the options menu...on the top left corner on Mobil YouTube page....there is a option for switching to desktop mode....click it and you are good to go

    You can go to Desktop Youtube, but chances are the video wont play. That's my only gripe so far. Especially considering Apps only play 720p and the browser was the only way to get 1080p and it worked near flawlessly before.

    I was having issues pop up recently with web pages generating an app request, saying an app was needed, but no app was obviously available. With the new update, I no longer experience this issue, and in fact, the pages look better than before. I understand this is a result of some sleight of hand regarding the browser string, but I feel that web sites were ignoring Windows phone users' needs.

    The fact that WinPhone is able to render even these pages using the code intended for IOS shows just how good our stuff is.

    Why do you really need to view videos in 1080p, isn't that a lot of hassle? Having to zoom in and out of the browser just to get to your favorite video.

    720p is pretty good and looks good even on 1080p devices.

    You lost me at zooming in and out. Also, I have a 1080p 6" phone, so... The point is, this update broke Youtube.

    Also, did you my screenshot? Alot of videos wont even play on the desktop site.

    I get your point but I have never liked using the Desktop version especially when you have a lot of amazing YouTube apps on the Windows Phone Store.

    I own a 15 inch 768p laptop and honestly I like 720p and have never really desired anything more than that.

    It's not crashing as before and I'm not having problems with YouTube, but something weird happened today. An website message saying that my device has 4 viruses O.O, I tough it only happens on Android devices (My Sister's Android has this behavior in many sites)

    You're right! Thanks.... But... What I'm seeing her? Why can't I find the "reply" button for comment anymore???
    Edit: Oh, sorry, there reply button is hidden... Though it's not obvious enough for me to think that it's there... Is this supposed to be the real render of the website? I didn't see this in my Aurora or IE browser in my Laptop.

    Agree... The loss of the resolution setting of the video is definitely a setback... Now I can't set it to low because I just want to hear the music... And can't set it to 1080p when I want to, this is stupid.

    No this isn't the real render as the desktop website is optimized for cellphone. That is why you always get to see this on the top of the page "e have redirected you to the desktop website. Return to mobile YouTube"

    I've seen your post, and I agree with you that's it's a regrettable loss... Why does it happen though, we need to directly ask them.

    That's... Disturbing.... Couldn't it be just a normal Website as usual?
