Disabling Youtube Front Page Recommendations

Category : Coding ยท by Jul 2nd, 2015

Youtube’s front page recommendations have always been a distraction for me. Due to reasons I can only interpret as political, the Chrome store has no extension to disable front page recommendations on Youtube. Thus I wrote a quick and dirty script to remove the recommendations.

Note that since Youtube uses a JS framework that prevents me from disabling the recommendations once and for all, I had to settle for the solution where the recommendations are cleared every half a second. The cost this incurs in the browser should be negligible. Please let me know if you find a better way!

The script was tested on the Tampermonkey extension in chrome. Install the script here.

Let me know if you run into any issues!
