How does it work?

  2. Go to ™
  3. Start typing in the YouTube™ search box - magic will happen :)

Search for videos in the YouTube™ website without having to stop the video you are watching. The extension will turn the search bar on the YouTube™ website into a smart search bar that displays search results elegantly within the same YouTube™™ page you're currently on and allows you to watch them, preview them instantly or queue them for watching later with a click of a mouse. Best of all, Smart Search for YouTube™ is intuitive to use and fits right into the YouTube™ look and feel.

Great extension for YouTube™ DJs (you know who you are!) and saves you from watching fake videos by "peeking" before you watch the full video.
