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).
