Use YouTube™ with intention and without distraction

Image from store MindfulTube (YouTube™ without distractions)
Description from store YouTube™ brings enormous value, but it's optimised to make you spend as long on it as possible, regardless of whether that's actually time well spent. This extension redesigns YouTube to minimise distraction and return the feeling of control and agency to users. All distracting features like autoplay and recommended videos have been removed and there are deliberate pauses between navigating to pages to give you a moment to think. The main design principle is that there is only one choice for each action in the user interface at any given time. In essence, all the potential rabbit holes have been plugged. To the extent possible, we have tried to remove videos from the results which are more popular but less relevant and only show you what you actually searched for. Upcoming features: - Set a time limit for YouTube™ use per day - Restrict certain categories of videos - Block clickbait-titled videos

  • (2021-01-18, v:0.0.4) Matej Hegedüš: Search box not working
    The search text box on the main page becomes inactive as soon as I hover my mouse over it. So I can't type anything in the search. I tried disabling my adblocker, but the same thing happens. The extension looks great otherwise.
