Or best of all, reinstate the blue icon, especially for the many of us who aren't using Yosemite.

Yes. At least give us the option to turn it off.

Please!!! I have no need to see the icon, and space on my menubar is at a premium with things i need to see.

+1, please allow us to remove the icon from the menu bar. On a 12" MacBook, menu bar space is a premium.

I too would like this feature, as long as there is a way to get to our Dropbox preferences some other way.

Yes please, I'd like to remove this icon from the menu bar. It's useless for me.

Actually I installed dropbox just because 2 other apps are using it for sync: 2do and ynab.

I hope they switch to iCloud Drive.
