  • (2021-09-06) ce ce: works as it claims HOWEVER you can't mute/unmute or user some left side controls under the youtube video; so it will make using it difficult unless you don't care to use controls. hopefully it's fixed
  • (2021-05-28) Dr. House: this was almost a great addon, except I had 2 issues: - I want to always have comments sorted by Top Rated, this addon has some other sort, probably by Newest - the 'Dark Mode' option won't stay toggled, I have to turn it on for each video
  • (2021-04-09) 覓瞇zore: Easy to use, great! Other plugins need a timestamp to display comments, this one doesn’t need
  • (2021-02-05) Chris Vydas: Good but causes issues interacting with YouTube when enabled. Cannot use end screen and a few other problems I can't think of at the moment, uninstalled.
  • (2018-10-19) Robin Barata: Great UI, really helpful app if you love spending time reading comments while watching videos. Good job!
  • (2018-10-11) Erik Hazzard: This is an amazing extension! It's made YouTube such a better experience. I love being able to watch something and not lose context while reading the comments. I can't go back to watching youtube without it
