    I just wanted to say +1 to this. The app would be much cleaner and more beautiful without that redundant and mostly useless menu.

    Another option is to use Chrome's native shortcut feature via the "Customize and Control" menu:

    ⋮ > More Tools > Create Shortcut

    Make sure "Open as window" is checked. This creates a distraction-free Chrome instance that you can launch via chrome://apps or pin it to the taskbar. 

    The lone caveat is you lose off-line capability. The benefits are numerous:

    • extensions
    • copy links (via right click on a bullet)
    • multiple instances.

    There are not much votes, but please remove the menu bar, as it seems to be a pretty simple change,

    and unfortunately there's no more an option of creating a Chrome app -- the shortcut just opens it in a browser.

    chrome://apps > Right click shortcut > Select "Open as window"

    Oh, thanks! Didn't know that.

    Still has some little disadvantages though: like slower startup time & doesn't work offline...

    Adding my voice to this as well. If we cannot hide the bar can we get it to match the color scheme of the theme chosen?
