A simple extension to restore the default browser behavior of scrolling when pressing the spacebar, on

Youtube recently changed the default browser behavior of scrolling the page, when pressing the spacebar, to instead pause the video. This extension removes the "Spacebar to pause" functionality and restores the scrolling.

Thanks for this, I would have made it if you hadn't. Macbooks don't have a page down button, so now I can use K to play and pause and space again to scroll

Thanks for making this. I hate it when developers remove standard user interface patterns, it's so obnoxious.
