Actually helped me get things done
by Chris, 2024-07-24

It is one of the most useful browser extensions I have ever used. I like it so much that I can't fully express my feelings. I was frustrated with YouTube's propaganda recommendations of non-educational and hateful videos, but now I am free to focus on improving my skills.

I primarily installed this app to eliminate distractions on the YouTube home screen. However, it offers much more functionality. I love it and highly recommend it.
