    Same here... OP is rather vague and not straight forward. My new tab page looks the same.

    There's a new "new tab" page that isn't rolled out everywhere yet.

    Go to Chrome://flags and disable "Enable Instant extended API" to revert back, or enable it to see what it looks like.

    Here's some more about new and experimental features in Chrome http://lifehacker.com/the-best-exper...heck-478620752

    -edit- If by new thing in the omnibox you mean a down arrow instead of the bookmark star, that's the Action Box option.

    @Asmekiel, I'll take a look at the API later

    Sorry for the others, I posted this quiclky

    Here is a picture
    This is the 'new tab' page with the drop down omnibox

    My version of chrome is 27.0.1453.110 , but I had it before I update (maybe a not finished upgrade thought)

    Before I had tiles with my most used tabs and I had an arrow on the left, that would switch to chrome apps. I loved this :/

    If you're going to link an image, at least make it one large enough for us to read;

    Yeah, I was editing after I realised that the picture was too small (posted the original size before :S)
