How To Remove DiggBar?

The recent introduction of DiggBar by Digg has caused quite a lot of conversation in the blogosphere, however DiggBar may or may not be good, it all depends on how you perceive it.

Is there a way to get rid of the DiggBar? Yes there is, for webmasters we have already written a tutorial that will allow you to remove Diggbar and other social networking frames for your website.


As a user you have the option to use a script Remove Digg Bar that will automatically remove the DiggBar frame, however if you are not a user, you can still get rid of the DiggBar by going to Digg settings page and selecting the option Newer show DiggBar for external links. This should get rid of the DiggBar forever for you.

Is the DiggBar a good thing or bad? Well that is up to the user to decide, however Amit from Digital Inspiration has a interesting post on why DiggBar is not as evil as it has been perceived to be, do take a look at it and decide for yourself.

Are you happy with DiggBar or you just hate it and want to get rid of it? Do let us know through your comments.

    I used to visit Digg until they put on that DiggBar and it became annoying. I feel like it is taking additional second to load which is no no no. When I’m at home, I will visit Digg because I have it disabled, but at work, where my cookies are cleaned…I’m too lazy to log in to view articles. I feel like Digg will slowly fade away and I will no longer use it. ddition is already gone anyway!
