It is no secret that many of us open Youtube to look up something important but get distracted by our home feed and end up wasting hours on end. πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Youtube Detox is a simple, minimal webpage that helps you search in a distraction-free manner. πŸ’―

Not to crap on this, but this is just a separate page with a search box that redirects to youtube with the given search terms. I don't think anyone wants to use a separate site just to search youtube. Might be useful as a Chrome extension or something, but not sure how that would work.
@levi1 The userflow isn't the greatest but it does offer a lot of value as is. I'll use.
@levi1 Good idea with the Chrome extension, but at the same time there's already tons of extensions like this.
Youtube is great. I get to learn a lot from it, ya know, and I'm sure you all do too. But it can also be a huge time-sink, especially when you're getting bombarded with recommendations left, right, and center (quite literally). 😫 With Youtube Detox, you can change this. Start with a simple, minimalistic page that lets you search anything on Youtube directly without the distracting home-feed. 😎 For privacy enthusiasts, you can also use Youtube Detox to save your history locally and disable your account's Youtube History. πŸ” And the best part? This is open source πŸ₯³πŸŽ‰ , just like all of the other stuff Team Xenox πŸ”₯ and I have released so far this year. So if you have any cool feature ideas in mind, don't wait for anyone else to add them. Just build them yourself! πŸ›  Here's the link to the repo: Let me know what more you'd like to see in Youtube Detox! I started the year with a commitment to release 12 products in 2019. This is my 12th and final product. Ending the year on a high note and super pumped to build lots more cooler, bigger, better products in 2020! They will all be awesome, so be in touch! πŸ€“πŸ™πŸΌ
Isn't it annoying when you totally forget what you opened Youtube for and instead go down a 2 hour long rabbithole that somehow ends in you discovering how baby giraffes are born? Yep, the homepage can be crazy distracting. So we made Youtube Detox for a minimal, distraction-free search experience! Make it your default Youtube search page and go search in peace! πŸ”
If it just could block ads in-between videos as well .... :)
I like this Idea. But the distractions are across the youtube not just on home page. Up next playlist, Auto play at the end of video, Suggestions etc. It can be more useful If you can some how get rid of all these things and let me focus only on the video I want to watch and then a dead end!
@bharat_bondu yeah, I agree. Not sure how to cut out all of those things tho. Perhaps through a browser extension. πŸ€”
