How many times have you gone to a video only to discover that it's a total waste? Ratings Preview for YouTube™ allows you to take those few seconds of life you would have lost.

Throughout all youtube.com, this extension shows a bar of likes and dislikes under every video snapshot, just like the official one. In this way, you can view the rating of the videos before watching the actual video, so that you can avoid garbage and spot amazing ones.

★ Ratings Preview for YouTube™ Uses YouTube's batch data API, resulting in a lightning fast loading of the bars (all of them at a time).

★ Ratings Preview for YouTube™ has customizable rating bar height.

★ Ratings Preview for YouTube™ lets you choose between the classic green-red or the modern blue-gray bar styles.

★ Ratings Preview for YouTube™ highlight best videos in every page with a box around them. You choose how many, or you can also disable it.

★ Ratings Preview for YouTube™ optionally show RP score, which rates every video with an intelligent algorithm from 0 to 10.

★ Ratings Preview for YouTube™ offers free support is included. If something doesn't work, just tell me, and I will fix it.

———————————————————— PERMISSIONS ————————————————————

The message shown by Google Chrome for the requested permissions are very far from the real needs of the extension, but Ratings Preview for YouTube™ requires them for the following reasons:

• Access your tabs and browsing activity: this permission is required to show the configuration icon over the address bar when a tab enters in youtube.com. You can still hide the icon if you want.

• Access your data on all websites: this is required for showing the related videos' rating bars inside the player when the video ends in the case of embedded videos.

YouTube is a trademark of Google Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries. Ratings Preview is an independent project developed by René Winterberg and has no relationship to YouTube or Google Inc.
