Scroll down to kill the sticky navigation. Scroll up to bring it back.
There has been a recent pandemic of web designers hell-bent on making web site navigation elements pinned to the screen. All various sorts of navbars, sidebars, toolbars are all seemed to be slowly overtaking the screen real estate leaving nothing to the actual content. It probably doesn't look as atrocious on these giant cinema displays they are probably using but for these of us who do use smaller laptop screens this scourge is truly maddening. Lo and behold, this is an attempt to purge this curse of the web once and for all. Basically, when you scroll down this extension would look for all these naughty site elements that refuse to be scrolled and mercilessly hides them. Scroll up to bring them back. It is important to understand that this is a beta version so there might be some quirks to iron out. If this extension does break site navigation use the support tab in chrome store to send me a link to the offending site.
- (2016-06-03) M Z: Very helpful in the fight against the new wave of crap web design. Works as expected, although it activates only on mouse events (no cursor/page scrolling).
- (2015-05-15) JohnandFarida Shackleton: Now it's easy to get rid of the annoying sticky nav. Well done!
- (2016-06-02, v:1.2.3) Support keyboard events
Please add support for keyboard events and side bar scrolling. i.e. page up/down arrow keys, etc. thanks!
- (2016-05-31, v:1.2.3) M Z: Add support for keyboard events!
Right now, only mouse events are supported, would be very helpful to add keyboard ones!

it moves/clones into left-aligned position instead, which blocks part of navigation
