Default YouTube's new layout and workarounds

Today YouTube rolled out a whole new layout. For the most part, it's not bad, especially how they've added people's avatars to the comments section of videos. There are some options they've made very difficult to access, like simply seeing your inbox. The worst thing is that they decided to make the whole thing no longer be centered, the whole site is stuck on the left side of the screen, which is especially apparent when you have a high resolution monitor. This is unacceptable--it forces people to crank their head to the left or it makes people turn their browser into a small window so they don't HAVE to look to the left.

Here's an image of their homepage:

Here's an image of their video-watching screen:

They seem to have gotten rid of the option to display your search results chronologically, or "by date". If you're searching for something, you can still sort by date by adding the following to the end of the web address: &search_sort=video_date_uploaded

But if you have Firefox, you can install the Greasemonkey addon and use this script that brings back the "sort by" menu in your search options: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/153580

Here's a Greasemonkey script that will horizontally center the YouTube layout:
A pair of pants. Oh yeah, and a shirt. And boots. And stuff.

FYI, Chrome users can check the Chrome Web Store for Tampermonkey, aka Greasemonkey for Chrome.

The script posted above to center YouTube seems to work fine with it.

Genius by birth... slacker by choice.
The indiscriminate use of vulgar language is the linguistic crutch for inarticulate motherfucking sons of bitches.
