  • (2018-03-11) Keeps keyboard focus on the video player, allowing FFW RWD and pause commands to work.
  • (2017-10-12) Alex Newell: Does *almost* everything I would want or expect it to do. It focuses upon initial page load, and even upon switching back to the youtube tab. But what it won't do is focus when switching from another window back to the browser.
  • (2017-07-18) JP Pellat: Highly underrated, essential extension

    It would be roughly 10009.74x more useful if that was the case.
