They don't have a monopoly on being annoying

Go away, Bing cruft

It looks like the biggest search engine does not have a monopoly on annoying changes on their search page. Bing pushed out something new this morning which slides up in the lower-right corner. Even if you click X to dismiss it, it will come right back the next time you do a search. Ridiculous.

What to do? First, assuming you're using Firefox, go get Stylish. Then create a new style, give it a suitably angry name, and then paste this in:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
 
@-moz-document domain("bing.com") {
  div#bnp_rtc {
    display: none !important;     
  }
}

Problem solved... until they change it or add even more cruft.
