YouTube Adds Option to Stop Downloading Videos. For What?

Eyeing the poor sailors suffering from their sleepy connections at the end of last week YouTube added in your player a resource is allowed to stop the download videos to your cache, allowing the user to do something else on the network while he pretends not yet given up watching nonsense on the web.

Interestingly, contrary to what one might imagine, the news does not allow the download is resumed. If the user decides to continue watching the video stopped, the page will reload and the download will be restarted from the point where it stopped, without the possibility of returning to the beginning.

The “improvement” is now available to all mariners. But would not it be easier to leave as it was? [Google Operating System]
