  • (2019-12-18) Jacob Shirley: The preview doesn't display on the home screen.
  • (2019-12-16) Yaric-Mixer: В последнее время то не показывает рейтинг, то после нажатия "обновить" с горем пополам работает.
  • (2019-12-08) Rachel Yordán: Worked, at least didn't appear to have malware like the other really popular one did.. but I'd say that the more annoying method of requiring you to create an API key is much faster, there is another extension on here that does that. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/thumbnail-rating-bar-for/cmlddjbnoehmihdmfhaacemlpgfbpoeb
  • (2019-11-29) Saqalain Qassimali: Works on the search page unlike other extensions
  • (2019-11-21) Harry TM: I tried other similar extensions that have better ratings, but they don't work all the time, but this one is working great so far.
  • (2019-11-19) Jamie A: Works while others stopped working.
  • (2019-11-16) T Z: Works 80% of the time. Sometimes it just... doesn't...

  • (2019-10-21) Jsfsls Noli: It works really well. The only issue is that sometimes the rating bars don't show up for a lot or any of the videos, and I have to refresh the page. There should absolutely be a button which redoes the rating bars without having to refresh the whole webpage. There should be direct visual feedback and recognition from the extension of when it's failed or not and periodic attempts to try again.
  • (2019-10-19) Fearagen: Works great never had any issues so far been using it for a month now.
  • (2019-10-16) Ricardo Portillo: It hasn't been working for over a week now. Please fix.
  • (2019-10-14) LaserCore: Works on Brave browser.
  • (2019-09-28) Col. Hathi: Great extension, but it's been pretty unreliable lately, often refusing to show the rating bars at all, no matter how many times I refresh or restart the browser. I'll still see the elements moving to accommodate the extension's rating bars, but the bars themselves often don't show.
  • (2019-09-26) Trey Chandler: This extension occasionally reloads every youtube.com tab you have open, causing paused videos to start playing.
  • (2019-09-04) Nyarlathotep: сделайте возможность опционально менять положение полоски рейтинга, которая закрывает стандартную ютюбовскую по просмотрам.

  • (2019-06-11) Samuel Triplett: This extension shows all the information it is meant to, and I find it quite useful. But in the past couple of months, this extension has begun to force my YouTube tabs to all refresh once a day. I suspected another extension at first, but I have narrowed it down to this one. I have an aging laptop, and 4 or 5 tabs refreshing and videos restarting is a bit much for this thing to power through nowadays. I thought it was the cache expiration setting at first, but disabling it has no effect and I can't see any of the other settings under my control possibly affecting this mass refresh. I'm surprised to see only one other commenter has complained of this same issue. Perhaps it's a conflict with another extension I use; however, an extension this simple likely shouldn't be having conflicts with anything in the first place. So I'm assuming the blame rests on this add-on and am knocking a few stars off in my review.
  • (2019-05-29) Anton Nimos: This extension needs permission to "read and change all your data on all websites you visit." It's specifically for YouTube, why didn't you restrict the permissions to youtube.com only? Right now, this extension has a privacy issue.
  • (2019-05-26) Keagon McDonnel: Adds a like/dislike ratio bar over each video thumbnail so that you know which videos are good and which ones suck. This used to be standard on Youtube before it was removed years ago. It really does help you save time and not give any views to videos that don't deserve them. Thanks so much for this extension.
  • (2019-05-05) Tuna Can: REQUEST: Can we get a percentage so that we have a quantifiable measurement? Thanks!

  • (2019-04-07) gerdo strzał: works like a charm!
  • (2019-03-30) Jayce Tomasello: >>>>>[[[[[[[[[[ Will change to 5★ if or when an update fixes the following issues: ]]]]]]]]]]<<<<< Refreshes every YouTube tab I have open seemingly at random even if I've force-killed them via task manager already, which can crash the browser when you have 100 killed YouTube tabs suddenly back from the dead all trying to load at once. Also I know all the settings are from the other extension that used to work but it's unclear what some of them do. Toggling "move playback bar to top" seemingly does nothing and I can't tell if "cache expiration" set to disabled prevents video ratings being cleared from the cache or if it clears ratings from the cache once the page with those ratings has been closed (the way I want cache expiration to function, maybe add settings for both and make the descriptions clear about which does what). Lastly this is 7.1MB where the other Ratings Preview for YouTube™ is under 1MB, maybe you can get the filesize down. -------------------------------------------------- I would be interested in an optional feature to display upload dates on all video thumbnails, aligned to the bottom left corner/opposite the video duration (including settings to display date to user preference, eg DD/MM/YY, MM/DD/YY, YY/MM/DD or relative- 5 hr, 5 mo, 5 yr etc).
