A Less Distracting YouTube

YouTube’s homepage and recommended videos sidebar are the platform’s most distracting features for me. I remove them with a userscript. In Firefox, I use the Violentmonkey plugin (source code here). Similar plugins are available for Chrome.

Import the following script, and watch the homepage and sidebar disappear.

// ==UserScript==
// @name Youtube minimalism
// @namespace https://churchman.nl/
// @match https://*.youtube.com/*
// @grant none
// ==/UserScript==
function del(selectors) {
selectors.forEach((selector) => {
const ele = document.querySelector(selector);
if (ele) {
setInterval(function() {
}, 250);
