Steps to reproduce

Go to YouTube, start playing a video, scroll through the seek bar at the bottom of the video window (the bar that you use to jump to a dif spot in the video). While scrubbing through this its fairly laggy. No where near as smooth as chrome or Firefox. Not a huge deal but would be nice to have it improved.

  • Hello,

    We are unable to reproduce your results; however, optimizing Edge performance is one of our highest priorities, and we will constantly work to improve this independently from other browser performance. Thank you for providing this information.

    Best Wishes,

  • Fair enough. I made a very short YouTube video showing the difference in action between Edge and Firefox when it comes to scrubbing through a YouTube videos timeline.

    This comparison is between the latest released version of Edge (from Windows 10 1803), and the latest version of Firefox. The performance is smooth in chrome as well.

    This is not a huge deal of course, but its something I’ve noticed with Edge for quite a while and one minor thing I’d love to see polished up.
