Here’s a simple-yet-helpful trick for Google Chrome users …

I like my web browser UI as compact as possible. To achieve that I have no problem of getting rid of some of the lesser used interface elements.

Netbook and tablet PCs come to mind where every additional pixel helps display more of websites and services.
