I need an extension or a script for Google Chrome that can help me disable or completely hide YouTube’s right sidebar with all the other videos links (Recommendation Bar).

I get distracted a lot by those while doing work.

    If you use "Theater Mode" on a video and zoom in a little bit, the recommendation bar will be moved outside the screen border. Alternatively, you could resize your browser window to only fit the player dimensions

An extension for Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. With Stylish you can name and save CSS rules as "userstyles" with URL scopes using these rules. Stylish will apply them when relevant pages are visited. Stylish can be used to hide page elements.

Relevant Userstyle

To remove the sidebar from youtube.com:

  • For Chrome, you must use the user interface on the Add Style page:
    • Enter #watch7-sidebar-contents{display:none} in the code section
    • Set Applies to = URLs on the domain
    • Enter youtube.com in the adjacent textbox
    • Press add
    • Press save in the top left
  • For Firefox, you can create this style:

    @-moz-document domain("youtube.com") {#watch7-sidebar-contents{display:none}}
  • I used to use Stylish to hide the comment section on youtube.com. You can do that with #watch-discussion{display:none}
