Light youtube ad skipper.

What is skipper?

Skipper is a Firefox add-on called 'skipper' that seamlessly skips YouTube ads. It loads and immediately skips ads, making it compatible with DNS blockers like Pi-hole. It can skip 'unskippable' ads, normal ads, image ads, and popup ads. You may still be able to support the channel since the ads are loaded, although not confirmed.

You didn't see anything... right? - Instead of blocking the ad's it will still load them but then immediately skip those. This works great together with a Pi-hole or any other DNS blocker. So you do not need to install an full adblocker just for youtube.
