YouTube redirect tracking remover is a Chrome extension by Benjamin Räder. This extension has 37 weekly active users, a good user rating of 4.00, and was removed from Chrome Web Store a year ago. The latest version, 1.0, was updated 7 years ago.
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.
