Show youtube comments as 'Newest first' by default.
This is a quick attempt to provide an option that google/youtube does not - automatically showing comments in chronological order. This is basically a workaround that simply clicks the dropdown automatically so you don't have to. It is not very 'smart' in its current state but if enough interest is shown I might work on making it better. *update 3/29/15* Yes, this is still being maintained. I appreciate your patience as I do not always notice right away when a major change to youtube breaks functionality.

- (2015-03-19) sonicdude558 retired: Worked okay, the placeholder chrome button needs to be removed. YouTube once again fixed what wasn't broke and broke this valuable addon.

- (2014-09-20) Pteroplax: It does what it's supposed to do but whenever I left-click on something the window scrolls to a fixed position below the video. Sometimes even clicking on a related video doesn't work, it just scrolls to show the comments.
- (2014-04-28) Josef: It does what it's supposed to. It was not working, but the author just patched it and it's working fine now.
- (2014-04-25) Capsuledragon: It no longer works.
- (2014-03-25) John Nellies: It does exactly what it says on the tin! The fact that YouTube doesn't give users the ability to change this ever so hugely despised feature is ridiculous! Cheers mate. :)
- (2014-01-02) It does what it says, A+ Exactly what I was looking for.
