A browser extension that automates skipping ad on YouTube. This is not an ad blocker; it just automates the process of clicking on the "Skip Ad" button on YouTube.

This is basically useful when you are watching a YouTube video (or a playlist), and an ad starts playing. YouTube allows you to skip the ad after 5 seconds, but if you can't be bothered to click it yourself (or you are AFK), this extension clicks that button for you.

Configurations can be set per channel. Did you know: YouTubers are paid 50% of the revenue for any ads playing on their videos. You can use this extension to play ads longer (or not skip) for channels you want to support, or skip them entirely for some.
