Ever felt annoyed by GUI clutter or unnecessary widgets on this site?

Meet undercurrent. It's a Google Chrome extension that removes some of them.

comment If RAM is cheap, why don't we load everything to RAM and run it from there?
@Hennes - I was thinking more along the lines of briefly stating the differences between volatile and non-volatile RAM or at least mentioning somewhere that your post applies for 'regular' RAM (dynamic volatile) as there are other kinds of it too. It opens up a nice perspective when one understands that SSD-s are not so different from other RAM devices.

RAM loses its contents when powered off. To be exact, only volatile RAM does but non-volatile RAM keeps everything even when powered off, as for example Flash chips. In that sense, SSD is not different from RAM but a subtype of it.

Turning off updates is easy but that is not what I am after. It is the habit of Chrome update to unilaterally fiddle with manually modified plugin settings I want to get rid of.
