Kiss Annoying YouTube Comments Goodbye With The Herp Derp Browser Extension

By Megan O'Neill 

It’s the general consensus that YouTube comments stink but, thanks to this fun browser extension, you never have to look at them again!

The Herp Derp extension from Tanner Stokes translates your YouTube comments into “herp derp,” the silly language of stupidity, which is less distracting though probably still on par intelligence-wise with the comments that currently populate the video site.

Stokes writes, “I loathe YouTube comments.  Here’s a simple browser extension to convert them to herp derp.  If you insist on reading the original (which is highly discouraged), click the comment.”

The Herp Derp extension, which is available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera, joins a number of other extensions designed to make your YouTube experience better (or just sillier).  Some of our favorites include the ‘I Cried’ button, which lets users rank the Internet’s saddest videos, the YouTube Preview extension, which helps you decide whether a video is worth watching, and the Pause for Later extension, which lets you easily pause and save videos from YouTube, Vimeo or Hulu and watch them later.

Check out the Herp Derp extension and let us know what you think, derp da derp.  And if you’re wondering what this whole “herp derp” thing is all about, check out the video below from Know Your Meme.
