Customize YouTube Videos Page in Chrome Using YouTube Options Extension


YouTube is a great website, where you can watch free videos, movies, how to videos and have some other fun. When watching YouTube videos you may get bored due to in-video adverts and hundreds of stupid comments or pre-buffering of videos. With the YouTube Options for Google Chrome extension, you can control in-video ads, remove comments, disable annotations, and more. The extension allows you to completely change the look and feel of YouTube in Google Chrome.
