A little script that makes a big difference.
Here is a script that redirects a youtube video to an instance of Invidious. Invidious is an alternative front end for youtube, it accesses the same content from youtubes servers while running different code in your browser. Some of the main advantages include:
- Less tracking
- No targetted suggestions
- No Ads
- Download audio and video
