How do I get rid of that annoying google chrome ad.

Ok. I have google as my homepage. Previously this annoying ad for google chrome would appear, but once I closed it, it stayed away for the rest of my web time. However, ever since I upgraded to the latest IE this annoying ad has become a permanent fixture. Why. First MS with their anti-trust litigation because they tried to force the world into IE, and now GOOGLE is trying to force the world into google chrome? I don't want the stupid ad on my homepage and I dont want GOOGLE CHROME. Why is this ad being forced upon me? Why? My next step will be to start a I hate google chrome ads on face book and twitter. I am sure there are many others who are sick of this subliminal force to switch to chrome. So, what? I will finally get sick of the ad and install it? No. I will get sick of the ad, remove google as my home page and start a revolt. Thats what I will do.

Even if you have Chrome installed it wont go from IE. Google are becoming a proper pain sticking there sh*t where its not wanted. If someone wants chrome you just google it. Why Why Why? Google need to understand some people hate clutter/inconvieniance of any kind. Personally I wont even allow desktop icons, why would I with a quick launch bar? I might find myself sending Google to 127.0.0.1 with the rest of the damn adverts I use to get hammered with.

Have you noticed that Chrome only works with IE and not Fox. More proof the MS and Google are tied somehow. So much for anti trust issues. Looks like M.S. finally succeeded.

By the way if you want to use library.nu without downloading google frame, set your processor speed to lower values (by power managment options). Then when you open library.nu if you press F5, before the frame opens (it takes a while) you can click on the search bar or login etc. Once you click on it it doesnt matter because you can use it even if the frame appears.

If you are using Firefox, download Greasmonkey so that you may download this script to hide the box...
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/124540
 
Read this article if you don't use Firefox. It contains instructions so that you can install the script on a different browser...

If you find that is too much of a burden you can get an addon called Adblock Plus. I find it easier to use the script because Adblock Plus slowed my Firefox slightly whereas the compact script doesn't.

I switched my homepage on my main computer and main browser to bing and use an email client to pull all of my emails. I still use google as my default page on chrome. I think I'll do the same at work, but there i dont use chrome and have no intention of doing so.
