How to Remove the Add Bookmark button in Safari

By default, the Add Bookmark button (+) is attached to the URL address in Safari 4. There isn't an option to turn it off, but there's a workaround: but unfortunately it doesn’t seem possible to remove the Add Bookmark button without also removing the address bar and the Google search box. However, this is a way to get around this.

  1. Select the View » Customize Toolbar... menu option.
  2. Drag the standalone Add Bookmark button to the toolbar; it's in the top row. This will break the (+) off the address bar.
  3. Drag the Add Bookmark button off the toolbar. It will poof and leave you with a plain address bar.
  4. Done
