While I love the convenience of menubar apps, I only have so much space up there on my 15' MacBook Pro screen.
Fortunately, a young developer (he’s only 14 years old!) has developed a free app to help you hide those unwanted icons in your menubar.
Broomstick can only hide icons for apps that it currently supports, but you can submit an app to be included in a future update. Pretty nifty.
Make sure to download it and give it a try on your Mac.
