I am not happy with the new YouTube layout:


it is very slow to load compared to the old version. Can I switch back to the old version somehow?


I could not find an option anymore in the UI, but you can add a cookie to enable the old layout (case sensitive):

document.cookie = 'PREF=f6=8';


You can also use this expanded cookie to disable autoplay and default to "list" layout:

document.cookie = 'PREF=cvdm=list&f5=30030&f6=8';
