Google wasn't exactly wrong in its assessments, but SPDY was something of a unilateral act, with Google responsible for the design and functionality.
SPDY was adopted by other browsers and Web servers over the next few years, and Google's protocol became widespread. This year, Google said that it would try to build AMP with Web standards and introduced a new governance model that gave the project much wider industry oversight.
This is a company that, time and again, has tried to push the Web into a Google-controlled proprietary direction to improve the performance of Google's online services when used in conjunction with Google's browser, consolidating Google's market positioning and putting everyone else at a disadvantage. Each time, pushback has come from the wider community, and so far, at least, the result has been industry standards that wrest control from Google's hands.
This action might already provoke doubts about the wisdom of handing effective control of the Web's direction to Google, but at least a case could be made that, in the end, the right thing was done.
But other situations have had less satisfactory resolutions. YouTube has been a particular source of problems. Sometimes these changes have improved the site experience in Chrome, but even that isn't always the case. A person claiming to be a former Edge developer has today described one such action.
This element disabled Edge's fastest, most efficient hardware accelerated video decoding. It hurt Edge's battery-life performance and took it below Chrome's.
The change didn't improve Chrome's performance and didn't appear to serve any real purpose; it just hurt Edge, allowing Google to claim that Chrome's battery life was actually superior to Edge's.
Microsoft asked Google if the company could remove the element, to no avail. The latest version of Edge addresses the YouTube issue and reinstated Edge's performance.
But when the company talks of having to do extra work to ensure EdgeHTML is compatible with the Web, this is the kind of thing that Microsoft has been forced to do. But they're available in Chrome and used by YouTube. The result?
YouTube pages that load in a second in Chrome take many seconds to load in other browsers. These actions may not be deliberate on the part of Google—it's possible that the company simply doesn't care about other browsers, rather than actively trying to hinder them.
But even an attitude of "Google first, who cares about the rest? The strong get stronger; the weak get weaker Microsoft's decision both gives Google an ever-larger slice of the pie and weakens Microsoft's position as an opposing voice. Even with Edge and Internet Explorer having a diminished share of the market, Microsoft has retained some sway; its IIS Web server commands a significant Web presence , and there's still value in having new protocols built in to Windows, as it increases their accessibility to software developers.
But now, Microsoft is committed to shipping and supporting whatever proprietary tech Google wants to develop, whether Microsoft likes it or not. Microsoft has been very explicit that its adoption of Chromium is to ensure maximal Chrome compatibility, and the company says that it is developing new engineering processes to ensure that it can rapidly integrate, test, and distribute any changes from upstream—it doesn't ever want to be in the position of substantially lagging behind Google's browser.
But this commitment ties Microsoft's hands: it means that the company can't ever meaningfully fork Chromium and diverge from its development path, because doing so will jeopardize that compatibility and increase the cost and complexity of incorporating Google's changes. This means that, even if Google takes Chromium in a direction that Microsoft disagrees with or opposes, Microsoft will have little option but to follow along regardless.
Web developers have historically only bothered with such trivia as standards compliance and as a way to test their pages in multiple browsers when the market landscape has forced them to. This is what made Firefox's early years so painful: most developers tested in Internet Explorer and nothing else, leaving Firefox compatibility to chance. Nadine Gordimer.
