New update on YouTube experimental design, returns the app launcher and the carousel on the homepage, and now we can see the channel cards

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=_c4VUVjr9hc; 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.

    document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=2t3ncqnpsEs; expires=Tue, 29 Apr 2014 20:27:18 GMT; path=/;"; window.location.reload();
