Hide Google’s Everything Sidebar in FireFox
May 11, 2010 2 Comments
Recently, Google gave their website a new look by providing an “Everything” sidebar to the search results.
I admit it looks pretty, but might take a bit of space from the browser window if you dont have a widescreen monitor.
Fortunately we can hide/remove it using Greasemonkey addon and installing a userscript.
What exactly is the point of having a sidebar that takes extra space in the browser window when we already have the More button?
Greasemonkey is a FireFox addon that enables users to install userscripts, which can help the user view webpages to his liking and thus enhance their browsing experience.
