A few days ago, I noticed a blue bar on the YouTube, which said: This version of YouTube is going away soon. Switch to the new YouTube. So, I would like to know what it means for your extension, and what will happen, if they will remove the old layout. I have only noticed it, when I was signed in, so at least normally, it doesn't show up.

There is a Reddit thread about it: https://old.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/ellkt4/misc_fd_rip_old_layout/ and one person, ask about it, on the Google support, but that person hasn't got a response yet: https://support.google.com/youtube/thread/24987355?hl=en

I am skeptical that they will remove support for older browsers, but if they do, I might put an effort into restyling new layout to match old one.

I hope that they don't do that, but most of the software, which I have the latest updates.

Is it possible to have most of the layout be just like the old one, if they decide to remove it? Since, the newer one, is much slower, even on high end machines.

So, I've changed user agent and looks like they really are removing support for older browsers. Well, fuck'em

btw, if you want to remove alert, use custom theme in Enhancer for YouTube

#old-browser-alert {
  display: none;
}

seems they start to announce the message region by region.
(3 weeks halt for announce webpage translation)

even microsoft wasn't complain about Youtube's shadow DOM API issue and now they're using Chromium engine for they're new Edge browser.

not a suprised so.. i'm start to little worried about how much slows they're new design in Firefox Specific. 😖
could be they targeting slow behavior on firefox quantom browser engine specific

@xxzefgh I don't mind that, but, I'm afraid, that when they remove that layout, it will not be possible to have it, like it is now. And why would you be using an old browser anyway?

Also, do you know why this excellent extension, was removed from the Chrome Store? I have seen threads about it, but I have never seen any answer to that.

@Marek33 to be honest, I didn't notice any performance issues, I just wanted old layout and that's why I made this. restyling would be enough for me.
and as for the chrome store, I don't know what policies were violated. this is what they sent me

@xxzefgh I did notice quite a slower loading, and also the website performance tests, like the gtmetrix have proven me, right by that.

That's quite a weird explanation, from their side, but since they did not want to allow some newer versions of the uBlock Origin there, it makes sense that they wouldn't even care for smaller extensions.

I don't think that Edge will have any privacy oriented Forks, so it's not much for me. Ungoogled and Iridium at least, doesn't ask me all the time to stop using the developer mode, like the Brave.
