Remove Google Background: Homescreen Haters

By Alan Ng - Jun 10, 2010

Earlier on, we informed you about the news that Google has added custom background themes as a default option when browsing their website. It seems like a lot of you don’t like the idea of changing the original. Why?

As we also mentioned earlier, backgrounds can simply be removed by heading to the bottom-left hand side of the website. However, as we’ve now realised – it seems like you can’t go back to the original white one, but rather only select another theme for the time being.

Google obviously has this on automatic until the rest of the day, so why not just choose another background which you feel is more suitable – it’s hardly the end of the world is it?

If you really are missing the original white look so much, you can head into paint and create a white canvas and upload it onto Google Backgrounds for a temporary solution.

However, I don’t see what all the commotion is about. Are you a lover or a fighter?

    “However, I don’t see what all the commotion is about.”

    Lets see…

    Say your car had a front window that could also be used as a movie screen, and that one day, your front window started playing movies 24/7, i mean sure its as nifty feature, its free even! But you got more important things to do, and its distracting feature you didnt request and cant turn properly off..

    Bah why do i even bother, you have your mind made up..

    To rid your self of the Google background image using Firefox:

    Do this

    Download the NoScript Add-on and when installed open the Google homepage. In the Status bar at the bottom right click on the NoScript icon and ‘Forbid’ scripts from Google. Simple.
