Getting rid of Google search bar on start page
How can I get rid of the Google search bar on the opening (start) page?
While on the start page, click on the 3 lines on the top right corner and uncheck "search box". The change is instant, no restart or reload is required.
"Advanced settings" enabled are needed.
