- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17368555, 4 months agoI've been using this extension for many months and I must say, it changed my life.
I used to spend 8 to 12 hours a day on average watching youtube videos and couldn't bring myself to do anything else. I had developed an addiction to scrolling through the home feed and mindlessly watching recommended video after recommended video non-stop all day.
After installing this extension (and also NewPipe on my phone) I slowly stopped watching so much youtube and, not only that, since I could only see my subscriptions, I would gear these towards my personal interests and the skills I wanted to learn.
Nowadays I only get around 10 to 15 videos a day on my subscriptions feed (I'm subbed to 182 channels in total) and watch 2 to 5 videos at most, some of which have to do with learning computer science, programming and cybersecurity which are topics I've been very interested in lately. And I don't watch these videos mindlessly anymore, since I want to learn more about these topics I've started to study them, write down the things I learn and then either apply what I've learned or look further for more videos on the topic at hand, all without the distraction of the home feed or the recommendations bar on the right side.
Thanks to the creator for making such a good extension and for changing my life, and possibly the lives of many others :)

- Rated 5 out of 5by Euni, 5 months agoThis is precisely what I was looking for. The add-on has the option of selecting settings granularly, so that I can, for example, deactivate everything in the sidebar except for transcripts. It works pretty well in both Firefox and Chrome on Windows.
- Rated 5 out of 5by ivan5, 6 months agoCool add, but as i can suggest some of function like elements hiding can be realized as *-block filter list. It would be cool to create lists of these filters uploaded on web page (for example, github) and import it to my ublock instead of extra add.
