"For example, they recently added a hidden empty div over YouTube videos that causes our hardware acceleration fast-path to bail (should now be fixed in Win10 Oct update). Prior to that, our fairly state-of-the-art video acceleration put us well ahead of Chrome on video playback time on battery, but almost the instant they broke things on YouTube, they started advertising Chrome's dominance over Edge on video-watching battery life."
I made the solution a bit less naïve and posted it to Reddit so that I can advertise VkRunner :p https://www.reddit.com/r/adventofcode/comments/a53r6i/2018_day_11_solutions/ebk1x5m/

What is it about being in a little protected metal box that makes people lose all humanity?
