How to: Disable the new sidebar from google search

Post image for How to: Disable the new sidebar from google search

Not a fan of the new sidebar in Google’s search results page?

Like most of you guys have noticed, google has changed the look of the search results page, But there are many folks out there don’t like changes.

So, Here’s how to hide or disable this new sidebar…

First off, You’ll need GreaseMoney plugin installed -If you’re using Firefox- https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/748

And then you can install any of the following user scripts
1. Google Classic http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/76161
2. REMOVE Google SideBar http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/76127

You can also use “Hide Google Options” firefox/chrome extention http://www.seotools.com/hide-google-options/

For me, I really like the new sidebar so much, However I don’t like the links at the top; they have become kind of pointless now. I’m sure Google will remove them pretty soon.

I dislike the sidebar too, I guess it’s just a matter of time before I get used to it. I’d prefer if they put it on the right, perhaps. But again, everyone must have a different opinion

My entire reaction to the new layout:
“Hm…” *continues to use google as if nothing had changed*
