  • (2019-04-25) Mark Robinson: Does nothing!!!!
  • (2019-03-02) Alfred Wahlforss: I like this, but would be better if it never showed any of the recommended videos. Now it takes a while for it to actually come into force
  • (2018-12-03) Alexandr Zhirov: It's amazing! Thanks.
  • (2018-10-21) Phuong Tran: It invades the video's place now.
  • (2018-10-13) Ikarel Morion: Just what I need, thanks/ Works just fine.
  • (2018-09-09) Doesn't work
  • (2018-08-24) Andres Sevilla: Exactly what I was looking for
  • (2018-07-09) Legion: Joke, surely. Doesn't just block recommended videos - it blocks EVERY video apart from the video being watched. And ALL videos on a channel
  • (2018-04-19) Kelvin Van: love this idea, this really help me a lot, thank you

  • (2018-01-20) Ayush: Awessome work dev Sir!!!! Wished I had expected this before!!
  • (2017-12-18) Doug McKeen: Thank you!! I needed this!
  • (2017-11-03) Rayna Kuzio: With just one quick click of a toggle-style button (located just above the 'Related Videos' section on the page of any Youtube clip), you can effortlessly switch between the option to SHOW or HIDE this section. It's a lightweight extension that doesn't cause any lag, pop-ups or annoying redirects. All you have to do is install it and it's ready to use. This is my new favorite discovery for making Youtube easier to use.
  • (2017-09-02) Alif Sajan: It worked for a while, but doesn't work anymore. I've tried uninstalling and installing it again. All the videos show on the homepage and all the sidebar videos show when you are watching a video. So now I'm using a combination of ToDoBook extension and DF YouTube (Distraction Free) extension. However, I'd much rather use this for YouTube because it would omit all the videos on the homepage which is nice if you don't want to see so many options. Hope the issue is resolved soon.
  • (2016-11-08) Blagatt: It doesn't work, recommendations still show.
  • (2016-11-04) Malte Möller: Macht genau das was es soll und sorgt so für weniger Ablenkung. Besonders in Kombination mit Plugins für andere Zeitfresser wie soziale Netzwerke etc. empfehlenwert.
  • (2016-10-31) Ha Wi: this saved me days of unproductive time! :-)
  • (2016-10-27) fra he: simple clean and working

    Can you make the permissions just be for youtube.com?
