What this extension does NOT do.

To set the record straight

Currently the YouTube Data API provided by Google is fairly restrictive in its scope and as such, no part of it has been used here.

Since the extension works entirely on your local machine, it can't modify search results served from YouTube's backend. In simple words, the results "personalized" by the algorithm for you are still served in the search page and recommended sections.

So where does this extension come in the picture?

There are a lot of engagement sections integrated within the search results to get you to engage more with the platform. This is a business decision and sometimes it works great! When it does, it serves you new and interesting videos to explore. However, when it doesn't, these recommendation-blocks act as a barrier between your search query and the actual results you set out to find.

This addon gives you additional flexibility to automatically prune THESE extra suggestions.
