Hide the Reading List Icon from Safari Bookmarks Bar in OS X Lion
If you don’t use Safari’s new Reading List feature in Mac OS X Lion, you probably don’t want that little eyeglass icon cluttering up your bookmarks bar. It’s easy to hide though, here’s how:
- Go to the Safari menu and open Preferences
- Click on the “Bookmarks” tab and uncheck “Include Reading List”
If you don’t use the Bookmarks Bar at all, you can always just hide that too by selecting “Hide Bookmarks Bar” from the View menu. This makes a much more minimalist web browsing experience out of Safari, but all of your bookmarks are still accessible via the Command+Number shortcuts and the Bookmarks menu.
