workd :D
but lets hope its not too heavy when i try on slow connectyion

If I enter this "code" into developer tools console and "activate" the new youtube's layout, is there any possibility to undo it and get the old one back? In case I don't like the new one...
Should I just delete all cookies from youtube, or...?

Thanks in advance?

For me, it works if you clear your browsing history (after ticking all options). Maybe just clearing the cookies would help. But I'm sure, it can be reverted to the original look, unless YouTube officially releases it.
