The Google News page layout has updated, here in the UK. Here’s the latest on how to tame it…

1. Hide thumbnails and icons:

Add these lines to the foot of your uBlock Origin block list, save, reload…

These lines should hide your thumbnails and ID icon on Google News…

! Always autohide Google News thumbnails and ID icons - but retain source name

2. Fix the colours and font size.

Headline text colour and font size is controlled via CSS thus…

/*** Fixes Google news headline colour and font size ***/
color: #3d69ac!important;
font-size: 15px !important;

/*** Fixes Google news source-name colour and font size ***/
color: #4c7d48!important;
font-size: 13px !important;

/*** Highlights date on Google news result ***/
color: #e3732a!important;
font-size: 11px !important;

This can be added to the bottom of anything you have controlling the CSS for Google, e.g. the Stylus browser addon and a UserStyle.
