This is exactly why I made this Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/only-show-uploads-for-you/mcabnfpanhpiokkpgafhkmpcjlcnlmjj

If you're like me, clicking through hundreds of subscriptions is not fun and going to a different link to just see what I was seeing before is less than optimal.

Unfortunately only for Chrome now.


I found a link that works :D


lengthening body because short answer is short.


I have created a Chrome extension that will default the home page to subscriptions and uploads only: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/youtube-default-to-subscr/lglhfcembnpbdigiepeafgllldfaelpf
