Long Introduction:


      is an extension we built to refine and sweeten your YouTube experience. A one-stop-shop with many powerful features to enhance YouTube, yet liteweight. A larger player & tidy YouTube UI / hiding distractions were the first loved feature. And there was so much left to build and are many clever features to come still.        ImprovedTube is designed with our own UI library: Satus (to manage your settings efficiently & create familiar apps/'cousins easily.)       Please spread the word: ImprovedTube is the only project of it's kind, because other open Youtube Extensions resigned. No other project provides so much CSS to adjust a website🦄.
