Script Summary: Brings back the old Youtube search/sort options on the video filters, which were removed from Youtube with the new design in December 2012. The script also expands the main layout column to fit these new options.

This script is no longer needed as of 2013. YouTube has re-introduced the old sort options. The script therefore no longer serves any purpose.I shall be leaving this here for educational use or whatever.
What does it do?
As written in the short summary, this script restores the old Youtube search/sort options on the video search result pages. In the update to their UI in December 2012, Youtube has removed these options for unknown reasons.
The script should work as is with FireFox with Greasemonkey and perhaps in Chrome too. The script requires jQuery, which is included over @include rules. If you find the script to be not working in Chrome, I suggest to check out TamperMonkey, as it increases Chrome's userscript handling a lot.
Tested and working on:
- Firefox Nightly + Greasemonkey
- Chrome 23 + Tampermonkey.
Do not install this script unless you are already included in the new Youtube design roll-out. Youtube rolls out new designs in waves, so if you are still seeing the old Youtube design you probably do not need to install this script.
v. 0.2 (12/9/2012): Changed match rules to fix https includes, fixed "Sort by relevance".
