I have just modified this script and improved it, check it at iGoogle Cleaner.

Nice and very useful script, thanks a lot.
Two suggestions :

- for a slightly better-looking and better-positioned button, I suggest you use these CSS properties :
position: absolute; left: 50%; top: 3px; padding: 0 3px; font-family: sans-serif; color: red; text-decoration: none; border: 1px solid red; font-size: 13px; background: #fdd; opacity: .5; -moz-border-radius: 4px;

- if you use the "new" (beta) version of iGoogle, hide nhdrwrap instead of nhdrwrapsizer; this will hide the header more completely (including the links "select theme" and so on). It also works with the classic version of iGoogle, but in this case the tab bar is also hidden.
(In order to access the new iGoogle, run the following code in the location bar when the iGoogle page is loaded : javascript:_dlsetp('v2=1'); )

Nice script, only too bad that the [Toggle header] link is hidden by the "Google Corner Bookmark" gadget (see http://www.google.com/ig/directory?hl=en&url=ww...) that I use.
It would be nice if the [Toggle header] link could be displayed in the top-right corner (or on both top corners).

Thanks Santiag0, that's why I wanted him to post the content of the address bar. I had the same feeling.
I'll correct the @include line

I think that the problem is in this line:
// @include http*://www.google.*/ig?*
change to
// @include http*://www.google.*/ig*

Because in my iGoogle my url is

Best regards!

No, I don't think it's adblock.

Could you paste here the address in the address bar of your iGoogle page?

It's probably something I haven't thought about in the URL scheme.

It doesn't work for me... I do have adblock plus installed, may be due to it, "iGoogle Clean" doesn't work.

Nice idea!, I find it a little "funky", but I'm sure someone will like it.
Thanks for sharing!
