Remove the Right Sidebar on Facebook with a User Script

If you’re tired of that right-hand sidebar on Facebook that doesn’t serve any useful purpose—other than serving recommendations—you can get rid of it with a simple user script.

If you’re using Chrome you don’t need to do anything else, just head to the page and install it. Firefox users will need Greasemonkey.

    That’s great, but there is script more useful. Check this out, http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/8861

    Went to install this but backed out and hit cancel. Is it normal when you install an extension like this that you agree to give it access to all your data for all websites? For something meant to change the look of a web page, why does it need access to everything else?
