Hide toolbar on Chrome permanently! but keep safe web.

I love safe web and the search dependability icons but have no intention on using vault, toolbar, branded search, , identity protection(transaction, password) or other "tools". I am a google search fan, always have been, always will be, and that is all I will use and the toolbar popping down on every reload is HIGHLY irritating and reminds me of this (http://search.brighthouse.rr.com). I don't want to hack it or anything, surely there is a Norton Approved solution for non-takers to hide toolbar for good on Chrome while still being enabled for use with the safe web, that is the ONLY toolbar "function" I want!?

*PS Google Chrome/Firefox/IE are not the only browsers in the world. I use SRWare Iron to avoid forced google updating and other heavy handed industry tactics and you SHOULD make Norton workable on it.

Click the x on the left of the Norton toolbar, and it will disappear. You will still have the safe search icons showing in Google Search. 

P.S: "I am a google search fan". Me too, but with the Norton toolbar in plain sight at least on those few sites where I've allowed JavaScript. With JavaScript blocked the Norton toolbar doesn't appear.

Ok, when I first loaded it, even clicking the x, it still seemed to pop back down after every reload or new page.

It seems to be hidden even when changing pages now or reloading.

I don't use Chrome, but check to see if there is a View - Toolbar option in Chrome as there is in IE. Then uncheck the Norton Toolbar.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, isn't this what you wanted?  Quoting from your OP "...surely there is a Norton Approved solution for non-takers to hide toolbar for good on Chrome while still being enabled for use with the safe web..."
