DF Tube: it makes youtube “distraction-free” by allowing you to disable a lot of the stuff on the screen – autoplay, recommended videos on the side of the screen when you’re watching videos, comments and livestream chats, everything on the home screen when you go to the website, etc.
Basically, it just means that when you go to youtube through the website, you have to search something specific in order to find anything. It is still possible to go down rabbitholes through a person’s channel, links in a video description, etc, but the frequency of rabbitholes should be much less. And no more emotional spirals, either, since you can’t read or get into arguments in the comments.
Everything you do on youtube has to be 100% intentional.
