less than 1 minute read

Here is a simple way to hide the ‘Top Stories’ garbage on Google News.

You will need to download 1 specific extension, Stylebot. Download it for Chrome here:

Next follow these short steps to block the needed parts of the Google News page:

  • Open Stylebot’s options by clicking on the added button the extension made and choose ‘Options’ from the dropdown.
  • Once the options are open, click on the ‘Styles’ link on the left side.
  • Then on the right side, click ‘Add a new style…’.
  • For the url, enter: news.google.com
  • For the CSS override in the bottom box, enter:
div.section.top-stories-section.section-toptop {
    display: none;
li.nav-item.nv-FRONTPAGE.selected-nav-item.topic-nav-item {
    display: none;

Click save, and you are done. Your Google News page should no longer show the Top Stories at all. :)
