YouTube is certainly not perfect, and most of us probably have lots of ideas when it comes to possible improvements. If you don’t want to install countless browser extensions that each make a small modification, you may want to try out Enhancer for YouTube.
A feature-packed extension that offers a lot of customization options, it can improve YouTube in a number of ways. Most importantly, it allows you to block ads on specific channels, easily control volume and playback speed and set a default video size and quality.
This particular extension was designed for Google Chrome, but near-identical versions are also available for Firefox, Opera and Microsoft Edge.
Extensive set of features packed into a single, intuitive extension

Cinema mode, ad blocker and lots of other interesting features
Enhancer for YouTube can automatically select the desired video quality when it is loaded and enlarge the player window, as well as activate an enhanced cinema mode that fades out all content outside the player.
The extension also comes equipped with an ad-blocking feature perfectly suited for YouTube. Unlike other ad blockers, it allows you to whitelist certain channels so that you can still support your favorite YouTubers.
Another interesting feature is the option to display a small video player at the bottom of the screen when scrolling down. However, it cannot be moved to the left side of the page, and it can get it the way of the video previews at present.

On the whole, Enhancer for YouTube is a well-designed Chrome add-on that brings a lot of small improvements, resolves some issues with YouTube and allows you to customize the website’s look and feel.
