Arrow GMail Login Page

Hello,

I noticed today, Wednesday, August 21st, that the GMail login page looks different in Firefox than in Microsoft Edge.

Anyone else notice this and know why?

Thanks,

David

The Google search page also looks different in different browsers. Google have always done this type of thing, no idea why.

They're probably using the UA (user agent) string that a browser sends with each of it's requests to send a properly defined (in their minds) page based on what kind of browser is used. Some sites that I follow a link to won't even load correctly or at all because I don't use one of the 'big four' browsers. What I refer to as one of the 'big four' is a browser made by Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, or Apple.
