Hi everyone. :)

More and more these days we see a vertical bar at the left side of web pages with social media links. I believe they are called CSS Social Media Sidebars. They usually cover up what your trying to read. They really annoy me and I was wondering if there is a way to automatically stop them loading with webpages.

I know that you can use Ad Block Plus to remove some but that doesn't always work and it's not automatic.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance. :)

A couple of people recommended that I'd try uBlock and Ghostery. The combination of the two have eradicated the CSS bars. :)

Awesome. :)

Thanks very muchly indeed for posting that. I won't have to use the other two. The less extensions in chrome the better. :)

You're welcome.
I don't use Chrome but I too prefer to keep my addons down to a bare minimum - less chance for conflicts.
