Finally finished the ON/OFF toggle!!! (HostDolphins note: This was updated in 2013)
Also created a full new light theme for daytime!

On request by many I have now linked the Youtube logo (at top left) to the Youtube Home Page! =)

I am really excited to be sharing this new feature with you! Now I have made NEW SCROLLBARS!!! Really cool! Look at your scrollbars, it matches the theme! =D

ENJOY!

I made new screenshots for you to see. =)
