    Works best on:

    (Can add &disable_polymer=true to the end of other URLs as well, works everywhere.)

    I sometimes need to load over a 1000 videos from my subscriptions, if I haven't been online for a while. The new UI, called polymer, lags like hell after 10 pages. Classic never lags. So I always manually set "disable polymer" to true.

    I've gone over 3000 videos once, to test. (A whole months' worth of videos.) Not even a GB of RAM was eaten by Chrome and that massive tab stayed alive for weeks (until I had to reboot.)

    Script Summary: Removes the annoying tracking parameter called "feature" from links on YouTube. (&feature=related and ~25 others) All your YouTube links will follow the same pattern. No unnecessary information in URLs.

    Version: 3.333

    [Remotely hosted version]

    [Screenshot (real, big, awesome, source code, older version 3.3)]

    Remove tracking parameter from YouTube.
    Shorten YouTube URLs.
    Clean YouTube URL.
    Uniform YouTube links.
    New in 3.333: Added (and subsequently fixed) support for the https protocol. Thanks to ranch2thedressing for reporting the issue and thanks to derula for spotting the mistake in my implementation. He rewrote my script (with my permission of course) to handle parameters better, you can find his version -here-.

    New in 3.33: Link colors are forced to be blue by default, purple when visited.
    This helps you skip (or just keep track of) videos you have already seen. And you will be able to tell when YouTube incorrectly marks random videos as "Watched".

    Made by Daniel "[3ICE](" Berezvai. Thanks to Mewes Kochheim.

    Useful tidbit for forcing channel URLs to go to a user's list of videos (Instead of the stupid channel trailer):

    var a=document.getElementsByTagName('a');
    for(var i=0;i<a.length;i++){

    Works in the youtube sidebar itself, on your subscriptions overview page, and even inside videos.
