By default YouTube comments will be replaced with the relevant Reddit comments. YouTube comments can still be viewed by clicking the YouTube icon located at the top right of the comments section.

The extension icon will turn orange when the current web page has been submitted to Reddit, and clicking on it will open a popup where users can view the posts and comments.

Safety
Risk impact

Voat - Reddit Comments on YouTube & Web Pages requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Voat - Reddit Comments on YouTube & Web Pages if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Voat - Reddit Comments on YouTube & Web Pages has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

It hides the scrollbar on YouTube in my Chromium-based browsers, SlimJet and Comodo Dragon... so I disabled it. I hope the developer can fix this.

Reddit Wherever! This extension is great. Sad that reddit had it removed for using reddit in the name. Glad it lives on as Upvote Anywhere!

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
