Hopin' this gets updated — almost every feature works, and the only one that currently doesn't is the "related videos"; YouTube seems to have changed the desktop layout for recommended videos when watching, i.e., from being a single row of videos to a flexible grid that changes according to the size of the browser, and this must've messed it up a lil' bit (´・ω・`)

Hiding watched videos works on the home page, but hides all suggested videos when on a video's page.
