After a debut this summer, YouTube’s visual refresh hasn’t rolled out to all of its users, but the folks at OMG! Chrome! have stumbled upon a way for you to get in on the action a little early. Simply point Chrome or Firefox to YouTube, open up the browser’s console, enter a line that’ll fiddle with a cookie and you’ll be able to cruise Google’s video service with its fresh coat of paint. To open up your console in Firefox, just punch Control+Shift+K on Windows or Command+Alt+K on a Mac. For Chrome, hit Control+Shift+J on a PC or Alt+Command+J on machines running OS X. Can’t wait to take the new look, which gives Google+ a nod, for a spin? Hit the source link below for the code snippet to get started.
