A Reddit user just shared an amazing trick that enables a version of the YouTube website that is not yet available to the public on the Google subreddit.

To enable it and check it out for yourself, go to YouTube and do the following...

  • Open a javascript console on your web browser (Ctrl+Shift+J on Chrome, Ctrl+Shift+K on Firefox).
  • Paste in this text and hit enter: document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=ST1Ti53r4fU";
  • Reload the page.
You should get the new YouTube layout.
