Hide Dropbox Icon

In my ongoing quest to minimize anything that’s unnecessary from my life, I’ve been aggressively removing icons from my Macs menubar & dock. I’ve been doing well, until I got to Dropbox. Dropbox is an essential service I use to keep files in sync across several computers. They have a great OS X app that runs in the background. The bad part is it puts a icon in the menu bar that I don’t use at all and you can’t remove without quitting DropBox. It’s fairly annoying.

Now it seems my problem has been solved by a clever workaround. Erik Hansen has devised a fix that only requires the replacement of a few icons. Works smoothly and flawlessly. Check it out here.
