Block Google+ Notifications on Other Apps

Eliminate Google+ NotificationsTired of seeing Google+ notifications on other Google applications? This simple user script will do the trick.  The Google+ Notifications Blocker user script is the script you want to install to get rid of any Google+ notifications in the upper right hand corner of other Google services, like Gmail – as one example.

Why would you want to do this?  Well, some people may feel that having the Google+ information up there 24/7 is a distraction from what they are doing.  If I am trying to clear away the dozens of emails I got last night, do I really need to know that Uncle Bob has just put me in his inner circle?  Probably not.

You will need Greasemonkey installed to make the script work.  Go check out imwill.com for more information on and about this specific script and you can download it directly from the UserScripts.org website.

    Or, just put the CSS code in userContent.css:

    @-moz-document domain(“google.com”) {
    span#gbgs1.gbts{display: none !important;}
    }

    (1) not having access to Google+ myself I can only assume the script’s code is correct (and that I don’t have a typo above :D)
    (2) installing a userscript–or Greasemonkey at all if you haven’t already–for a snippet of CSS code is not the best idea (JMO)
