Breadcrumbs can be useful. But for me, they just seem to get in the way. Since I want command over all stylistic aspects of my site, I just want to get rid of the pesky things. And there is a module for that – Disable Breadcrumbs. There are per page options that didn’t work very well for me. It seemed to be a little inconsistent. But the overall disabling of all breadcrumbs seems to work just fine.
