The default app on hasn’t received an update since it was originally released. In turn, the mobile version of YouTube is more feature-rich and usually faster than its app counterpart.

If you’re sick of your iPhone always opening up the app instead of the mobile page, Mac OS X Hints has a simple way to stop it from happening. Since you can't delete the stock apps from iOS you have to block them from opening.

This is done by setting up a restriction for it. Tap Settings > > Restrictions. Flip the YouTube slider to off. Now the YouTube icon will disappear and any time you want to load up a video it will will stay in your browser, no app required.
