If I view a Stack Exchange page without being logged in there are three banners which I have to remove first before browsing. The page looks for example like this:

enter image description here

That's totally unusable for me. As I remember those banners are a relatively new "feature".

Is there any trick to get rid of the banners when not logged in for example by tweaking some cookie settings in my browser or by blocking specific IP's in my hosts file (I am working with ubuntu 18.04)?

    I don't think so, because that question is about the design of the stackexchange page and my question is about if there are any "tricks" such that I can get rid of the banners as user (in particular not by waiting if the developers change the site design).

  • Other than a userscript, I don’t know what “tricks” there could be. Aug 30, 2018 at 11:54

    You could use an adblocker to zap all elements you don't want to see.

    I don’t think this is a duplicate. The answer to the proposed duplicate isn’t the same as the answer to this question. The answer to this question could be wait until the problem identified in that other question is fixed, but that’s a related question, not a duplicate.

  • add *##.js-dismissable-hero.ps-relative.sm\:pb24.sm\:pt24.fc-black-200.bg-black-750.py24 to uBlockOrigin 'My Filters'

  • Also, I would go on a long masked but profanity laden tyrade on how utterly disgusted I am with these banners trying to bully me into log in, along with having to log in to multiple SE subsites, but I wont risk this solution that hopefully gets so many views that it starts a revolt among SE users to remove this nonsense that detracts from the site's normal and pragmatic use by normal and pragmatic people.
