  • Youtube has remained the same way it was, with quite a bit of GUI changes after the acquisition by Google. If you are a netizen, you would already come to know the fact that Google is (from a long time ago), been working on Youtube, to change its GUI, especially after huge changes it the websites UI.

    This YouTube’s new look is not enabled by default. There is no option in YouTube to enable it either. To get it, you have to do a little bit of a console hack – this can either be done in Chrome, Firefox or Opera (Internet Explorer? What? – Are you joking? )

     

    Open the developer’s tools in Chrome by pressing the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + J. In Firefox, use the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + K.  Opera users can click on the Inspect Element option in the right click menu and click on the console tab.

     

    Then, in the console tab, type the following:

    document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=ST1Ti53r4fU"

    and press enter.

    After reloading the page, you will see that you have got the new YouTube. Explore! :)
