Remove the black Google bar with Greasemonkey script

 

If you use Google Docs in Chrome’s or Firefox’s app mode, you will see instantly how disturbing the new black Google bar is. It’s very intrusive:

google black bar

You can use this script to remove the black bar. However this script works on all Google’s websites. Sometimes it’s useful to have direct links to Google Mail, Images, News or Pictures so those sites are only one click away. But when you are in app mode, you’ll want to focus to your document only. In Firefox you can change the affected sites in Greasemonkey’s settings. However because Chrome installs user’s scripts directly, you must edit the script and replace the wildcard regex with https://docs.google.*/*

The result:

google black bar
