Recently, Google made some major changes without giving user an option to use the old style.
I do not like their changes, mainly the bar on the left. It is duplicate of the bar on the top which I'm fine with.
Now, with the bar on the left, waste huge amount of space beneath it, I am forced to constantly scroll my browser horizontally to see the full content.
I'd rather to see ads fill that space. Then I know this is a decision driven by commercial interest.
Now, with those seemingly useless links which is neither good for me nor Google, I am completely puzzled.
How can I turn this sidebar off? Try a "GOOGLE SEARCH".
