Show/hide left banner on OSM map?


I find that the left-side banner on the OSM screen (ie. the vertical banner that contains the “Help, Community, Data” sections) is taking a bit of space when viewed on a desktop computer.

Is it possible to show/hide it à la RideWithGPS?

Thank you.

It is planned to remove it completely (as soon as those links are somewhere else). In the mean time you could use AdBlock, Greasemonkey or other kinds of user scripts/user styles to remove/hide the element with the id and class “left_menu”.

Thanks for the info. I already use Privoxy to filter web pages, but wanted to double-check before writing a filter.
