We are used to so much of funky and cool things. And when we see such minimalist thing we realise how overloaded the web has become.

Right tool if you want to use youtube in right way, this can be improved by better search and better flow , this the best tool for research

Pros:

Help in office time , where you don't want to get lost in youtube suggested video,

Cons:

Average UI and poor escape, this makes the user stick on to the fullscreen where there is no exit

Thanks for the super nice comments. I can add a back button, hah (The story is there used to be one, and now there isn't. But I'll add it back but in a nicer way than previously)
Interesting concept indeed. Part of what has led to the clutter on YouTube is advertising (space on pages reserved for ads, suggested videos so that Autoplay ads get another view when you click on them etc). How will you be able to monetise Tube as a platform without having ads encroaching on the visual space and ruining the minimalism?

@chrisskillicorn The honest truth: I might not. I posted it to HN yesterday, expecting a few people to be like "Oh, this is neat. Thanks!" like I normally get. Nope, got a great reception so figured I'd follow it to its conclusion and figure things out later. Also, I am not entirely sure what YouTube will and will not allow since they have pretty strict terms of service.

Love the simplicity of it :) Youtube's interface indeed is rather cluttered & filled w/ ads and the sort, so that makes your product quite useful if one would rather use Youtube w/o distractions.
