/**
* Originally I wanted to hook unto the pushState of the site to check for the
* position of the Recently Uploded chip, however YT uses some secret sauce I
* am not familiar with to change page state which makes it difficult to hook
* into it without just polling the url. Instead I use a mutation observer to
* trigger whenever the DOM of the site changes and then update the position
* of the Recently Uploaded chip if it's present on the page.
