Note: I've only tested this on Windows but I'm assuming it should be the same on the Mac.
It's possible to do this with AdBlock Plus. Get it by going to http://adblockplus.org/en/ and clicking the big green button. Be sure to click the little Continue button that appears at the bottom to confirm that you want to install it.
Once installed there should be a red stop icon in the address bar. Right-click the icon and choose Options, then go to the tab called Add your own filters. Enter the following:
This tells AdBlock to remove the element with an ID of 'mgmhppd' (the blue bar). Click Add filter to confirm.
If you find AdBlock interferes with any other sites you can disable it for that site by left-clicking the icon and unticking Enable for this site.
OK, not my idea, found on another forum, tried it and it worked!
Go to the Start menu, type regedit, right click on
HKEY_CURRENT_USER choose Find and type in google. You will see a Google folder, delete this and close.
The first time you open browser you may see it once, click on No thanks and that should be it. Please note, this is on Windows 7, but should work on others!
I had the Get to Google faster Update your default search engine. Sure No thanks Don't click on sure or no thanks Click on Tools, Compatibility view settings, ADD this website, Google. com then Close This got rid of the blue bar for me
