It's solid. I was getting these disgusting results for removing ear parasites/dental care pretty regularly with - I assure you - completely unrelated search words. This fixed that, so thanks. I don't know what's going on over there...

Adds nice customization to YouTube in Edge! I have an addon for Chrome but it isn't available in Edge. This one does a pretty good job.
