  • (2023-10-29) Joshua Strobl: Works exactly as I was hoping and is non-invasive. Massive thank you to the developer.
  • (2023-10-11) Micheal Shallop: Works when "hide youtube shorts" extension wouldn't! Finally, something that purges obnoxious shorts from your search results!
  • (2023-10-10) Craig Jesso: Installed this when a different extension stopped working. This one is even better! Solid!
  • (2023-08-22) Flippa_da_Boss: doing us good service. thank you
  • (2023-08-22) Phil Barwood: Does the job. Thanks Umut! A small suggestion, it seems like sometimes the shorts link in the menu bar flashes on screen for a moment when page is loading then disappears once page has fully loaded. Is there any easy way to stop it appearing at all?
  • (2023-08-06) the cheat: it works.
  • (2023-07-18) K. M. Hill: Umut is extremely helpful and responsive. He has reacted to each change made by YouTube, ensuring the extension does the most it can do. The most recent change by YouTube, wherein they have now grouped all the shorts into a panel is re-enabling this extension to hide the shorts more effectively once again.
  • (2023-06-11) Sahm Ghi: All it does it's makes the videos hard to see, doesn't remove them, kind of pointless as they are still visible anyway. Need something that will actually hide youtube shorts
  • (2023-06-07) Mr Inkogneeto: Why it does try to log account password and usernames? I got antivirus warning have reported
  • (2023-06-07) Handful OfScrubs: Doesn't hide anything, shorts still in subscriptions all the time
