A fast, lightweight, and undetectable YouTube Ads Blocker for Chrome.

This blocker is designed to monitor advertisements, automatically seek the ads and skip them on YouTube and YouTube Music as well. It's important to note that this doesn't classify as traditional ad blocking, as the ad content is technically "loaded".

Nevertheless, the extension's underlying logic enables it to fast-forward through the ad content to its conclusion. The entire process is optimized to occur within an extremely brief timeframe, typically <=50 milliseconds, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted user experience.


This extension effectively eliminates all categories of YouTube and YouTube Music advertisements:

Category 1: Ads visible on the homepage.

Category 2: Ads overlaid atop the suggested video list.

Category 3: Ads displayed below the video description.

Great! Consistently updated. I dislike the pushing of advertisements, first they give us our escape, then take it away. Much appreciated. Hopefully one day these forced watching ads will be outlawed or something.
