    I’d be more interested in replacing those fugly ass icons, to be honest. Although I’m not really a fan of the sidebar, but it’s useful, and I used it before it became ever-present. So completely erasing is not an option for me.

    Bookmark the following link. It will give you the old “Show Options” menu on the search results pages.

    The only possible reason for Google NOT offering the option to collapse the sidebar is the hope that they will generate a few more ad-clicks by drawing the user’s eye away from the relevant search results. Pretty low for a company whose mission statement is all about the user experience. http://tinyurl.com/38jjbyr
