Google homepage banner appears on IE10 (desktop version)

Postby Risug » Sun Mar 03, 2013 11:42 pm

Greetings all.

I was wondering if anyone using IE10-desktop could supply a filter to remove the blue "Make Google your homepage" banner which appears across the top.
The original filter works for IE8 and IE9, but for some reason not IE10-desktop.

So, as I alluded...the filter: #mgmhppd, #pmocntr2 {display:none;} - Add CSS to all pages removes the Google banner and the "Install Chrome" box. On my pc with Windows XP using IE8, that filter removes the "Install Google Chrome" box, but doesn't remove the Google banner.

What does remove the aforementioned on IE10-desktop on my Windows 8 pc is: google.promos - Remove divs/spans with text. The filter is a bit unsafe as Jeff mentioned in a thread a few years ago, but so far so good. I also like that the google.promos filter is a catch-all.

The filter mgmhppd, pmocntr2 - Remove divs/spans with text also works, but it's my understanding that google.promos - Remove divs/spans with text is less likely to break code.
