Use YouTube™ with intention and without distraction
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
- (2021-06-05) Kashan Saeed: This extension is absolutely amazing and has saved me from wasting time and getting distracted on YouTube.
- (2021-01-17) Naishadh: the idea and implementation is great though It needs quite a lot of polishing. So many times the extension does not work.

- (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.
