Youtube - Proper Layout

Added by JPM@userstyles, Created: Feb 24, 2014, Updated: Dec 29, 2016


A Youtube tweak to improve the layout:

- The theater mode player is now bigger and aligned to the other tables.
- It makes the header (top bar) a static header, so it won't follow you when scrolling and you don't lose screen space.
- The left menu becomes a static object too.
- I also removed the "recommended channels" menu, as it takes away space and it's basically ads.
