Removes the Sci-Hub left sidebar to make PDF take up whole window.

Image from store Sci-Hub Remove Left Sidebar
Description from store This is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser which hides the left sidebar on the website Sci-Hub. This allows the PDF to take up the whole browser window. This extension is useful as the left sidebar can be distracting and can take up screen real estate, making the PDF narrower and smaller and therefore harder to read. The extension has been updated to work on multiple Sci-Hub domains.
