    The only possible reason for Google NOT offering the option to collapse the sidebar is the hope that they will generate a few more ad-clicks by drawing the user’s eye away from the relevant search results. Pretty low for a company whose mission statement is all about the user experience.

      Jase, looks like a healthy discussion is going on at google groups. Each of us has different perspective. I couldn’t agree more than Thomas –

      “Google is neither a philanthropic nor a communist organisation. Making money is not evil.”

    This is a Mozilla addon and it probably works great with Firefox but, what can be done to achieve the same results if you’re using Chrome? I use Stylish in Firefox and it takes out both the search frame and the sidebar.
    I have several Blogger pages up and have recently found that none of the links for comments, editing and whatnot will work in Firefox anymore.
    I like the iGoogle homepage because I can set up a lot of things to my preference EXCEPT the stupid, HUGE Google search bar and useless sidebar.
    Stylish claims to have a version for Chrome which allows one to install user scripts to modify the iGoogle page. The one for Firefox works great but I can’t get the same results from the one for Chrome.
    I’m about ready to give up on Google altogether. I think I may go back to Firefox and delete all my Blogger sites and switch over to WordPress for my blogs.
