Customize Chrome default (user-agent-stylesheet) CSS

I use Google Chrome for my everyday web browsing. On the system, I also use Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) as my download management software.

The problem with DAP is, it’s plugin will insert an html code/tag on the page displayed on Chrome down at the bottom of the page (right before body’s close-tag), whenever the page is clicked on for the first time.


As you can see, the tag style contains visibility property set to collapse. Therefore, whenever the page finished loading and clicked on, there will be a huge blank space inserted at the bottom of the page. In most cases, this won’t affect the page viewing. But when I have created a page and set the page’s height to be always 100% or at certain fixed pixels, this insertion of tag will cause the scrollbar to appear to accommodate the blank space and somehow, this annoys me.

Therefore, on every web project I wrote, I add the following CSS to the default css file of the web so it will hide the DAP tag permanently.

	display:none !important;

That will take care of it for every pages in my project.

What about other websites? Web page that’s not mine to modify the CSS? Well, I add the above CSS to my Chrome’s custom User Stylesheets file located at C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets/Custom.css. Therefore, Chrome will apply the above CSS to all pages viewed on it and permanently hide the tag on all pages.

P/S: If the above Custom.css or it’s path does not exists, open Chrome with --enable-user-stylesheet parameter. Or perhaps, just create the path and file.
