Particle is creating a browser extension to improve the UX on YouTube

I developed the YouTube Plus extension for Firefox and Chrome primarily to improve my personal experience only to later discover that other users desired to take part on this journey as well. I am enjoying learning all the programming behind this extension and how things work on the other side that is the developer world. The users reviews have been very fulfilling and their help proved to be and still is very valuable. At this moment I have released a new extension called Iridium just for the new YouTube material layout and it replaces the former extension once the new layout becomes permanent.

And to bring this to the relevant point, although the extension has not been generating significant profit I have not felt an urge to find other ways to monetize it. I am trying Patreon following the suggestions of colleagues for the first time because, while not being a priority for the continuous development of the extension, any income will be welcomed and helpful.

I thank everyone that took the time to read this and I hope the users keep enjoying my work.

Below is a list containing the top features available in the extension:

  • Play your videos in a pop-out window
  • Turn off 60fps
  • Allow ads only in videos from your subscribed channels
  • Blacklist entire channels from your suggestions and search results
  • Make the player fill the entire browser with the Fullbrowser mode feature
  • Player always visible where you want while reading the comments
  • Player always playing while navigating away from the video page
  • Reverse any playlist
  • Take video screenshots and save them
  • View and save the video thumbnail like old times
  • Bring back the total number of videos uploaded by the creator
  • Use the relative video post time to know quickly how old the video is
  • Control comment section visibility

and more, full list of features: https://github.com/ParticleCore/Iridium/wiki/Features
