  • (2017-07-06) Tobias “Toblin” Linder: Doesn't work at all anymore.
  • (2016-05-24) Matt M: Good app, but it often makes it so comments that have a "read more" option cannot be expanded. I know the point is to hide comments, but if I want to see them they should be visible in full.
  • (2016-04-17) John Deergab: YouTube comments could give you cancer if you don't turn them off, 10 out 1 doctors approved of this.

Latest issues

  • (2016-06-30, v:2.0) Shawn Sörbom: Need to refresh page to use this toggle
    when I browse to a youtube video, I still see comments (no toggle visible unless I refresh the page. Is there a way to enable the toggle on the first visit?
  • (2014-09-22, v:1.9) Angelus_Solus: new comment layout fix
    so how close are we to getting an update that actually works with the new comment system?
  • (2014-09-12, v:1.9) Robert Kelly: Incompatible with newest YouTube layout...
    This is a great extension but unfortunately YouTube's newest layout changes have broken it again.
  • (2014-09-01, v:1.9) Angelus_Solus: not functioning
    it's letting comments through since 20 min ago.
  • (2014-08-30, v:1.9) No longer works...
    Since YouTube (or probably Google) changed the video layout page for the billionth time, this extension no longer works correctly, thus comments are being shown.
  • (2014-08-30, v:1.9) Zach Powers: Doesn't work with new Youtube layout
    Youtube just changed their layout and the extension now doesn't work. I am seeing comments.
  • (2014-04-08, v:1.9) Still shows comments?
    I have the extension installed and enabled, but I am still getting comments on most youtube videos. Occasionally they will be hidden, but they are usually still there. Is there an additional setting/toggle that I need to use?
  • (2013-11-07, v:1.8) Aver Raiher: Doesn't work with new comment system
    It stopped working properly after Google introduced new comment system on YT. Now it shows comment even on tab description. Please fix this if it is possible!
