Can you elaborate what this does?

Edit: looking further is it just an alternative front end? What’s gained using that?

Sans tracking probably

ublock origin works best on pc for skipping ads on youtube (and the rest of the internet). sponsorblock is good also for skipping in-video ads.

Vanced works great for if you are on mobile, and SmartTubeNext for android tvs if you have one.

Wait.

We’ve gone from a guy with a fricking flashlight eyeball to adblocking on the net?

Derailing threads is a cyborg tradition…

I would also like to see a better robot emoji, the default one looks like a toy: :robot:

I can second vanced. Absolutely a must have if you watch YouTube on mobile. The sponsorblock integration is incredible

How does he turn the flashlight on and off?

Kudos to him, turning lemons to lemonade in a very, very cool way

Hall effect sensor. He swipes a magnet over it to switch it on and off. Maybe he should get a Titan

That’s even cooler

Someone with TikTok tell him we’ll give him a free Titan implant if he mentions Dangerous Things on a TikTok showing it work with the eye flashlight :slight_smile:
