<<This is an opt-in beta for "Feather" support on YouTube. The "Feather" project is intended to serve YouTube video watch pages with the lowest latency possible. It achieves this by severely limiting the features available to the viewer and making use of advanced web techniques for reducing the total amount of bytes downloaded by the browser. It is a work in progress and may not work for all videos.

Your comments will help us improve and perfect the mixtures we're working on. So jump in, play around, and send your feedback directly to the brains behind the scenes.>>

Although I kind of like the "Feather" version but it feels as if the bird has all its feathers plucked out!

I love feather. I think it looks so much nicer than the normal YouTube, but could still be better

Haha, truth! Also, this feather beta should just be located at feather.youtube.com or something and opting-in would simply automatically redirect you. This way, you could send feather links to others
