Latest reviews (2019-10-27) Jared Kamel: now if there was a way to remove comments from reviews, i'd be in heaven (2019-10-10) Nico Guiller Hidalgo: Annoying Midnight Club Still Cancelled Soz Comments are looking everywhere (2019-09-25) blaquehart b: I am sick to death of seeing this comment in music videos " Anyone still listening to this in current year?). And the fools do this every year and receive so many thumbs up. It is the little things that make life worth living and it is these little things that make you want to end it. Youtube's comment section has become a cacophony of banal stupidity. The same comments being recycled over and over again on political videos. I'm over it! (2019-09-24) 103 PWC: 最高に素晴らしいアプリだと私は思います。広告もないし、youtubeを楽しく利用できるようになりました。開発者の方、本当にありがとうございます。 I think this application is the best one I have ever used. I don't have to be bothered by annoying ads and this application has enabled me to enjoy watching videos uploaded to YouTube. I am so grateful to you, who developed this application. (2019-09-18) Don't Subscribe: the problem of youtube comments are the recent comments, and I always look the recent ones (2019-09-14) Nij47: Спасибо, от Прокрастинации очень спасает (2019-09-09) SCP 055: I love this (2019-08-23) Muhd Sajjad: Does what it does, letting me listen to music without being distracted from work (I use Firefox for play), would recommend. 4 stars because as others have pointed out it would be good to toggle individual elements like live chat only even though that doesn't make sense. Also because the icon looks unpleasing, but I never look at it too long anyway so kidding there :P (2019-08-13) Jill Marzolino: Seriously, hands-down, the best app, extension, etc I've ever added to my online life. Thank you for not having a toggle button and saving me from my own toxic curiosity. (2019-08-02) Raina: YouTube comments are swamp, better to just ignore them all. Works! (2019-07-31) Yes No: Does exactly what it says. Perfect! Actually, if you would just scroll through the reviews here you'll get a nice demonstration on exactly why this little extension is so great. (2019-07-26) Isaac Clarke: To nejlepší z malých věcí!!! .... Miluji toto rozšíření a miluji čisté video na stránce youtube při přehrávání. Best of small things!!! .... I love this extension, and love clean video on youtube page in playing. (2019-07-23) Anthony Piana: thx a lot, cancer has been defeated (2019-07-07) Shaun Collier: The majority of the reviews I see are about either people who are liberal and they hate that the comments are toxic because of X, Y, Z bigoted reasons, or the review complains about how people just shouldn't look at the comment section and that hateful comments are just part and parcel (borrowing from my favourite mayor) of the internet. I'm right-wing. My reason for using this extension mostly doesn't relate to either of these. I find YouTube comments a waste of time. I've used YouTube for nearly fifteen years and viewing and replying to comment sections have become a habit. It is usually stupid comments (often one-liners or memes) that aren't constructive that float to the top of the section. I can take the heat when it comes to political comments, but for many people it's not just as simple as "not looking". This is similar to ignoring a chocolate bar. You shouldn't eat it, but you may have an eating disorder and as a bad habit you end up eating it on autopilot. It's like that when delving into cancerous YouTube comments. Like the chocolate diet. Disposing of that will help put you in the frame of mind to lose weight. Removing these comments will help you restore faith in humanity. While I'm here I'd like to suggestion an option for Android users. It's not possible to hide YouTube comments with the app. Instead I recommend installing a repository called F-Droid. It's quite easy and doesn't require rooting. With that you can install an app called NewPipe. Not only does it support background listening and skipping ads, but it doesn't even support YouTube comments. All the good, and then some, but none of the bad. (2019-07-05) swz896: ありがとうございました 最高です (2019-06-24) Mozarth: A melhor ferramenta desde o Adblock! Minha qualidade de vida e saúde mental melhoraram muito. Tenho menos desgosto e sinto menos nojo do ser humano. Recomendo. (2019-06-23) Shea Bubendorfer: This should come pre-installed on Chrome. Can't recommend it enough! (2019-06-23) Rekt Facts: brilliant! now i can watch videos with serenity without the compulsive need, inflicted by overexposure to social media, to scroll down and see what other (- random strangers-) think of it. after disabling facebook and al, and removing youtube comment section with this, my internet experience improved drastically. (2019-06-11) Tilda Hadley: Thank God, now I can watch videos without having them ruined. You're a lifesaver! (2019-06-02) Ayaaz Puttaroo: Does exactly as it is says and is effective. Thanks. (2019-05-28) .: love this. but it would be nice to temp disable it with a pin / pass code just until the page is reloaded (2019-05-05) Sunny: I need this for my phone either. (2019-04-26) asphyxy: Does exactly what it intends to do, YouTube comments make me cringe every time I read them... (2019-04-26) Hannah Schroeder: I do this absolutely crazy thing where I go and read the comments section of videos, even though I know that it's just going to make me mad! Thank you for sparing my sanity because apparently I have no self-control. Truly, I appreciate this chrome extension - I've only been using it for about 10 minutes and already I feel so much lighter. Youtube is so much more enjoyable now! (2019-04-23) The8bitFloof: I've used this extension for a few years and never thought about rating it until now, but it's the best thing on the chrome web store. Youtube is tons more entertaining with the silenced rubes.
