    Hi guys, on Chrome 49 youtube forced the new layout which opens very slowly compared to the old one. I want to try if I can always open youtube in the old layout.

    https://www.youtube.com/?disable_polymer=true - This opens in the old layout but anything you click opens in the new layout.

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/restore-classic-for-youtu/dhnphdafbioamppmaiaebbdobfhbhnlm - I tried this Chrome Extension but says file is removed.
    Does someone know how to get this extension file and install it?

    https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/39405-youtube-classic-for-2018-polymer-disable/code - I also found this, I don't know if it is safe or how to use it. What happens if I press "Install this script"?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Google Chrome browser has not been supported by Windows XP in a long time, so that's why you're forced to use such an old version(49) instead of the current version(83).
    It's my guess using such an old version is having a negative impact on you using YouTube.
    Have you considered using the Feodor MyPal 28.9.3 browser?

    It supports Windows XP and is kept up to date.
