Productivity Hacks for Google

Name: Slim iGoogle

This is a Greasemonkey script that removes the search box from iGoogle and slims up the header since it doesn't really have a point as it takes up valuable screen real estate and I use Firefox or Chromes search box.

// ==UserScript==
// @name Slim iGoogle
// @namespace
// @description Slims Google search/account bar
// @include*

@namespace url(;

Name: Optimize Google Reader iPhone Version for Sidebar
