YouTube Super Fast Chat

Please make sure you install the script from greasyfork.org, not fake sites.

This script is similar to YouTube Live Chat Tamer, but there is a main difference is that, YouTube Super Fast Chat alters the DOM styling and rendering while YouTube Live Chat Tamer does not. By aggressive hacking to the rendering process, YouTube Super Fast Chat will make the live chats become ultimate fast and responsive. Both scripts can be enabled together.

Since 2023.07.25, Data Manipulation for participant list is already included in YouTube Super Fast Chat. YouTube Live Chat Tamer is no longer required.

Since 2024.01.01, kevlar_tuner_should_test_maintain_stable_list would not be set to true due to a bug. Stable List will be controlled by YouTube JS Engine Tamer instead.
