AKA Remove Action Overflow Button
"Because naming your module after a CSS rule is fashionable and socially acceptable!"
A simple module that completely removes the action overflow button from various apps. Useful for people that have a hardware menu button on their device and don't want to see the superfluous button on action bars.
This is similar to another module: "Noverflow" by el1t. However, my implementation should be more thorough in removing the overflow button from sometimes-stingy apps, such as Google Chrome.
Only tested on 4.4 CM-based ROMs, but it should work on previous versions of Android (anything 4.0 ICS or newer should be okay), as well as ROMs that aren't CM-based. If not, let me know and I'll try to resolve the problem.
Thank you to GravityBox for originally implementing the important lines of code!
Download, install, enable and reboot. No configuration interface included, nor is one necessary.
