A couple of days ago I discovered http://www.yvoschaap.com/youtube.html on the web. It provides code for searching YouTube videos. I adapted the script to my needs, see http://mesdomaines.nu/youtube_search.
I prefer my script (http://mesdomaines.nu/youtube_search) to YouTube's https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bla for several reasons, among which the cleaner look (no ads and other disturbing info) and the possibility of playing the videos on my own 'search page'.

I created a file whose URL can be used to play YouTube videos without all the distractions.

This video-url : src="http://s.ytimg.com/yts/swfbin/player-vfle5oFqK/watch_as3.swf?eurl=http://safeshare.tv&video_id=YOUTUBE-VIDEO-ID, which uses the safeshare.tv video service, shows YouTube videos without the distracting elements around them. NO ADS! (I wish I knew the safeshare-code for playing embedded videos without Flash, but I don't).
Internet Explorer (and, occasionally, Safari) may refuse to play certain videos outside the YouTube-environment.

The latest version of Firefox (24.0) offers some interesting new features, among which the possibility to view your site (any site) in Responsive Design Mode. So if you want to know how your site looks like with a mobile device (Iphone, Ipad etc.), view it using Firefox.
(Not that I care much about people who use devices that inherently offer poor website vision, of course).
Pages that contain heavy script files may produce a white flash (flicker) when the user navigates between them. This flicker often occurs in IE and Chrome, less often so in Firefox. There are different solutions proposed on the Internet for solving the problem. I noticed they don't always work.
There's a good chance the flicker goes away if you do the following:
- Put your html-lines before your js-lines as much as possible. We can often move scripts (normally put in the head
