Summary

When you click on a link in a YouTube videos description YouTube does not directly redirect you to the target site. Instead they redirect you to a page where they can track your clicking activities and auto-redirect you to the destination page. This extension fixes that behavior by sending you to the destination site directly.

The extension is OSS and licensed under the MIT licence. You can find the source code on Github: https://github.com/DudeNamedBen/youtube-redirect-tracking-remover
