You Can Bring Back The Tags On YouTube For More Flexible Searches

Back in 2012, YouTube started hiding the tags associated with videos to stop people copying popular combinations.

The Best Of Cloud-To-Butt, The Only Extension You'll Ever Truly Need

Back in August we happened upon what quickly became our favourite browser extension: Cloud to Butt Plus.

There’s an awful lot of content out there on YouTube and sorting the wheat from the chaff can be a serious undertaking.
