Comparison between Google+ and the YouTube's experimental interface

YouTube's experimental interface now show a "Recommended" link in the homepage and, when you watch a video, you can see in the persistent header links for "What to Watch", "My Suscriptions" and "Recommended". The guide sidebar is smaller and now the design is very similar to Google+.

Here's how you can enable the experiment:

  • Go to and load your browser's developer console:
    • Google Chrome: Tools, Developer Tools
    • Mozilla Firefox: Web Developer, Web Console
    • Internet Explorer: Developer Tools (F12), Console
  • Copy and paste the following code:
    document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=Mk4uh1GL8q4; path=/;";window.location.reload();
  • Press Enter and you'll see the experiment.

If doesn't work, try this other method:

  • Open Chrome and install this extension.
  • Go to YouTube and select "Edit Cookies" option on the context menu:
  • Find a cookie named VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE and replace the value with this cookie value:
  • Click "Submit cookie changes" and refresh the page.
