YouTube recently announced that it is hiding the ‘dislike’ count on videos to tackle coordinated dislike campaigns. However, barely days after that announcement, a new browser extension is bringing back the dislike count, much to the delight of users who reacted to YouTube’s original announcement with dismay. Named “Return YouTube Dislike,” the open-source software is developed by Dmitry Selivanov, with its source code available on GitHub under the GPL-3.0 license.
Return YouTube Dislike is a free and open-source software (FOSS) that’s available as a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox, as well as a TamperMonkey userscript for other browsers. It is also available for jailbroken iOS devices. It has more than 70,000 users on Chrome alone and has a perfect rating of 5 on 5 on the Chrome Web Store. On Firefox, it has over 10,000 users with a perfect 5-star rating once again. It is in an early alpha version but works exactly as advertised, returning the dislike count to YouTube videos.
