So, what do you guy's think about it do you like it or hate it? I think it's kinda annoying so I eliminated it.

For the ones that don't like it, just install "Adblock Plus" and add these links to filter:




What the heck was YouTube even thinking when adding that? >.>

there are also user scrips for greasemonkey that work extremely well.

Personally, I dislike the new YouTube bar as it looks very out of place. However, thanks for the links to filter out the bar. I will be putting it on my filter list now.

no problem :P, yes it's really annoying, with no purpose in life.

If I understand correctly, it does remove the bar from "viewage," but the "Autoplay" still exists, :/ and yes, I dislike it.

yes, you can add the links I posted, to put on the filter list of add block plus for both the firefox and Chrome alike ^^

I don't know. I guess it's okay if I'm in my favorites and want to pick through them on that page. But for anything else it gets annoying. Even when I'm in my favorites. It just gets in the way of EVERYTHING.

I prefer the older way where it was on the sidebar. But that's just me. YouTube runs YouTube, and they can do whatever they want with the website. We are the guests, so we will have to just get used to it.

I really don't like it though, it does not really even match the rest of the website.

I completely HATE the new bar at the bottom. It glitches all the time. When I want to comment on the video after it, it will pop up right were the comment's area is. Sometimes it will take me to the next video even after I click "Autoplay Off" I usually want to comment on the video or at least give it some thumb's after watching it. Thanks so much for the code on removing it.

It's terribly irritating, quite honestly. It's really cumbersome and unnecessary. It seems like there's 100 tools to perform one job on that website.
