Avoid Lousy Related YouTube Videos

Chrome, Firefox and Safari: Related videos! They're useful but can often have misleading thumbnails or text, designed to get you to click when you have no actual interest in the video content. It'd be nice to see the ratio of likes to dislikes on the video before you go in, right? Now you can.Redditor bmacs has this extension, explained in the above video, and it does exactly what I just described. You get to see the like/dislike ratio in a bar under each video so you can know what you get before you click. This depends heavily on the video being old enough for it to get a fair number of ratings, but I think that is a prerequisite of sorts for a video to be a recommended related video. This extension doesn't guarantee you'll never click on a video you don't like, but it does lessen the chances of it, just like cooking your meat thoroughly lessens the chances of you seeing that meat again before the proper amount of time has passed.

    PERFECT! I've been waiting for something like this.

    I always wondered why YouTube didn't do this...and don't get me started on how long I have been waiting.
