YouTube blames ad blockers for slow load times, and it has nothing to do with your browser | The delay is intentional, but targeting users who continue using ad blockers, and not tied to any browse…::YouTube has clarified in a statement that users who use ad blockers will have a suboptimal experience regardless of their browser.

    Remember that just like with everything YouTube doesn’t apply changes to all users across the whole site simultaneously. They always do gradual rollout with randomized user impact. So as to not upset or raise too many alarms at the same time. It’s been their MO for about 10 years now.

      As has been the MO of many large sites for a while now. It’s called blue-green deployment.

        Yeah and while I’m sure it is useful for minimizing outrage at controversial changes, it’s mainly to prevent rolling out major bugs to too many people

        If that’s blue green deployment, then what is red yellow deployment?
