Last night, we told you how to hide the email updates from Google Buzz, however if you want to further sanitize your Gmail account and get rid of the Buzz updates, the best way is to treat it like just another label.
Unfortunately, Gmail does not provide users with an option to hide the Buzz label, or hide the updates in them. If you are one of the annoyed users who do not want to see updates and the cute icon in your Gmail sidebar, the Hide Google Buzz counter is the best way out.
Google Buzz Hide Count is a Greasemonkey script which will hide the Google Buzz update counter and the Buzz icon in your Gmail account. I tested the script in both Firefox and Google Chrome without issues. So if you have been waiting to get rid of all the buzz, go ahead and download the Google Buzz Count Hide userscript.
