ViewPure is a great tool for any teacher who loves YouTube, but hates all of the annoying ads, user comments, and related videos that pop up online. They can be distracting, bothersome, and (sometimes) inappropriate. Simply copy the URL of the YouTube video that you want to watch, and paste the URL into the bar on the ViewPure website. Or, you can visit ViewPure and simply drag their icon into your browser bookmark toolbar. Once ViewPure is on your toolbar, you simply click on it while viewing a YouTube video and it will automatically "purify."
