Although YouTube is an excellent resource for streaming all kinds of videos, its interface has a lot of room for improvement. Many computer users would prefer a more tidier and minimalistic interface that is currently not being provided by YouTube. Here to let you use YouTube in a minimalistic interface is a website called Toogles.
Toogles is a free to use website that provides you with a minimalistic interface to browse YouTube videos and stream them. When you visit the website you will browse and search filters on the leftmost pane. These filters let you search for specific videos and narrow down your search using upload date, relevance, and various other YouTube filters. The results are quickly populated and displayed in the right pane as thumbnail images for the videos.
You can click on any one of the videos in the results to start streaming it. The site provides a custom streaming interface as well. The video being streamed is present in the right pane whereas the description appears in the left pane. If you resize the browser’s window to a smaller size then the description is placed on top of the video, while both appear in a single pane that is positioned at the center. The service also provides a browser extension for Google Chrome users.
As you can see from the screenshot images, the interface offered by Toogles is far tidier than the one offered by YouTube. If you are looking for some minimum-distraction YouTube video streaming, you should definitely check out Toogles.
