YouTube Introduces A Subscription Bar

By Ricky on July 29th, 2010 

Yesterday YouTube has quietly added a new feature - a subscription bar. The subscription bar sits at the bottom of the page when you are watching a subscribed video and when you bring the cursor near it, it opens up.

The subscription bar is like a playlist of your subscribed videos. You can choose to auto-play the videos one after the other or randomly. Or, you can just skip to a particular video. In short, it is not very different from what you used to have at the sidebar - only the position is different.

Actually, I liked the old design better. This new design sometimes gets in the way. A quick Google search reveals that I am not the only one who dislike this new feature. Many are complaining that it is annoying. (I agree, it is very annoying.) The problem is that there seem to be no option to disable it right now. I hope they add that sooner than latter.

What do you think? Do you like it? Or do you find that annoying as well?
