Super easy way to speed up wp-admin by just disabling the useless dashboard widgets. A few clicks and my frustration level with the back end decreased 50%. Thanks!

I only use 4 widgets and change them around all the time. Both my admin and widget areas are now clean and fast. Wonderful little bloat removal tool. Thanks!

I tried several other plugins to disable the junk on my client's dashboard. For some reason, none of them worked, and older methods from Codex and even recent articles still didn't work. This plugin, however, DID. I actually came all the way here just to give this a five-star. Well done.
