"Puffin for YouTube" is NOT associated with YouTube or Google, Inc. It is developed by CloudMosa, Inc. -- the creator of the Puffin Web Browser. Puffin for YouTube is a special edition of Puffin browser optimized for YouTube users. Its motto is "Better for Less" -- a better user experience for less data usage.
A better user experience is made possible by Puffin's wicked fast cloud rendering. Puffin Browser is faster than other browsers or even native apps on high-end Android TV / Set-Top Boxes. The performance advantage is especially noticeable on mainstream or low-end Android TV / Set-Top Boxes.
Less data usage is made possible by Puffin's wicked efficient data compression. Puffin Browser consumes 80-90% less data than other browsers or even native apps. The data savings are more significant on slower network connections, like in developing countries or during data roaming.
Puffin for YouTube removes the traditional web browser UI for a fully immersed YouTube experience. Puffin UI is kept as subtle and intuitive as possible. For example, monthly data savings are displayed when refreshing the news feed. To view an image in full quality, simply shake the mobile device.
To fully appreciate Puffin for YouTube, try it on a Nexus Player or any low-end Android TV Set-Top Box. Puffin for YouTube works remarkably well.
