    I'm not sure why you've left out IE(9).
    It works in IE9 too... just hit F12 for the developer tools, and click on the web console tab, and then type in the info above.
     
  3. Maybe because IE is crap ;)
     
  4. Because the website they grabbed their info from didn't mention it either.

    Well they left out Opera too. So I followed the links in the articles to trace back to the original source, nobody on the way to the source had how to do it in Opera either. So I figured it out myself.

    To make it happen in Opera. Go to Opera Menu -> Settings -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Cookies -> Manage Cookies. Then go down to Youtube.com and hit the pulldown menu. Select VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE and hit Edit... then change the value to ST1Ti53r4fU then you are done. Close out of the preferences windows and go to youtube.com

    So I guess everyone just figures it out on their own all at the same time?

    I don't like the new layout it. My subscription videos are in a single column in the center of my screen, and they aren't even grouped together. I think i liked the layout before last the best. At least that one grouped your sub vids in rows and columns.
