Hide Everything Useless on iGoogle

Hide iGoogle Content

Want to hide all the stuff you do not really need on your personalized iGoogle homepage?  Thanks Super iGoogle, a handy Greasemonkey script, you can simplify iGoogle to only show you the content you need to see.

Why hide iGoogle content?

I really didn’t want to hide everything you see in the screenshot, I mainly needed a way to hide the left sidebar, because I really only use one page on iGoogle for my calendar, RSS links and e-mail.  Once you get Super iGoogle installed into Greasemonkey, the tool itself is pretty self explanatory.

Super iGoogle options and settings

What about other Google links, settings and more?

You get a drop down menu added to the iGoogle web page, where you can choose to hide or show the header, the sidebar, the footer and the mini search the script adds to the very top of your iGoogle page.  Other menu items include:

  • Advanced Search
  • Search Preferences
  • Language Tools
  • iGoogle Settings
  • Change Theme
  • Get artistic themes
  • Themes for Causes
  • Add Stuff
  • Classic Home
  • My Account
  • Sign Out

So all the usual iGoogle settings are there, they are just tucked away so they are not a visual distraction to you.
