"People want access to videos at all time[s], and they want to do so as quickly and consistently as possible," said Youtube's product manager for mobile, Andrey Doronichev. "With this new site, users can get the same experience on their smartphones or tablet devices in terms of both speed and functionality as they do on the desktop as we have streamlined the site to work over 3G networks as fast as possible."
The Youtube HTML5 website has been designed to offer a consistent user experience on all mobile devices, including the iPod Touch and the iPad. Compared to the most recent update, this version also offers options like sharing, and best of all, it now features an HQ option.
Other enhancements include a more intuitive and more responsive search interface, as well as the ability to easily read and post comments related to a video, a feature that took YouTube a long time to get right.
