YT Dislike Counter Extension working on Android via Kiwi Browser

 Share

Hi All,

 

I'm midway through watching the recording of tonight's WAN Show (perfect while wrapping Christmas presents btw) where Linus & Luke discuss a workaround to the abscence of the YouTube dislike counter by installing YouTube Dislike Counter extension on the desktop version of Chrome.

 

That got me wondering: is there a reputable Chromium-based mobile browser app that has extension comparability built-in? Well turns out, THERE IS*! 

 

Here's how:

  1. Dowload & install Kiwi Browser from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kiwibrowser.browser
  2. One launched tap on the three-dot button on the upper right corner of the URL bar to open the drop-down menu or type in this URL: kiwi://extensions.
  3. Tap on "Extensions" (7th option from the top).

  4. Toggle on "developer mode" and click on the [+ (from store)] button to add an extension from the Chrome Web Store.

  5. Upon reaching the Chrome Web Store install the "YouTube Dislike Counter" extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/return-youtube-dislike/gebbhagfogifgggkldgodflihgfeippi

  6. Toggle on "desktop mode" (also in the three-dot drop down menu), go to YouTube.com, and enjoy!

P.S. I find it funny that not even the official Chrom Browser app had this feature available by default 😛

*this workaround seems to be available only on Android devices. Sorry iOS & iPadOS users! :(

Hm.....Firefox might have their own extension library, but I am not aware that there one for restoring some semblance of a YT Dislike counter.

 

If you find out for sure if desktop Chrome Web Store extensions can be installed on an Android or iOS broswer app other than Kiwi please do show me!
