Love a good YouTube video but hate all the noise of flashing ads and inane comments? The Quietube bookmarklet creates minimalist YouTube video pages so you can enjoy the video and skip the rest.The site's extremely simple, but it has a few features that make it deceptively powerful. First, the bookmarklet (available on the site) just takes a quick click to quiet down the noisy YouTube video. When you click it, you're redirected to a minimalist Quietube page with the video embedded. On the Quietube page, you can change between a white or black background, depending on which you prefer. If you want to share the page with friends, you could copy and paste the link, but the site actually has a simple link to create a TinyURL for the page so it's easy to drop the link on Twitter or elsewhere. (The TinyURL also remembers the background colour you chose.) So while there's not all that much to Quietube, we really like what it does.
