How about a 64-bit version instead of more bells and whistles?

Firefox cited problems with its 64bit version from users.
You might be missing out since the 32 bit version can only handle 4GB of browsing space ??????
Drivers work better with 32Bit !
I can't get certain software to work with 64 !
That's why I reverted back to a 32 bit system.

They just added a search box to what the new tab page always has been? People are fucking stupid.

I like it. I only used the new tabs page before. I really only go to a handful of sites everyday so I don't mind it at all. :)

What in the world is everyone's beef with it? I'm not sure I see what everyone problem is. I like the changes and I hope they keep them. Looks great to me!

This change hasn't filtered down to linux users yet. I still have the "old" style new tab page and apps page. My Windows partition that has Chrome has recieved the update, and the only thing I really miss thus far is the recently closed tabs at the bottom of a new tab window.

I like the new layout but wish you could have the apps page open with the new tab instead of recently visted pages

Its a security issue.
Not everyone has the option to be the sole user of a computer.
NO ONE wants their surfing history on display to other users.

That is as plain as the nose on the face.

And it goes against the grain of a SIMPLE search page. As in a big honking box to type in and a big honking button when ready....

If it ain't broke don't destroy it.

then use a different browser and stop complaining.

I agree. Chrome sucks anyway.

I agree, I have removed Chrome for a number of reasons but not a discussion I am going into detail on here.

I rather like this new page. Cleans things up

The only thing I miss is the recently closed tabs being at the bottom, I accidentally close things all the time DX

You can right click on the tabs area and select open recently closed tabs.

I just want the "recently closed tabs" and "Other devices" back where I used them all the damn time.

One thing almost everyone is missing with this update is it places Google's Voice Search button over there on the right of the search bar. I just open chrome and click on the mic icon, and I don't have to type a thing. That wasn't accessible before unless you went to the Google homepage (which is now nicely integrated).

The new tab page always showed your most viewed sites, and if you look at sites you have major concerns about people seeing that often, than you should really use incognito mode.

I like the new tab page though I really see no use for the google search box due to the omni bar but that just might be me.

My problem with this is that even when you're in a public place, this new tab page broadcasts part of your internet history to anyone within viewing range of your screen. It should be clear to anyone, especially Google, who has all our histories, that this is clearly no good if that includes certain sites you would only visit in private.

avatar

If you're visiting sites in private why are you not using incognito mode?

Haha, it isn't that bad. You open new tabs and will have a selection of buttons anyhow. All they did was mix the google homepage with it. The only thing they forgot to add was the Google tool bar with the selection between Drive, Maps, YouTube, etc.
There's no additional mouse clicks as this is still the new tab page, and the placement of buttons was only moved to the bottom.

If people truly want to get rid of it, then change the new tab button to direct you to your homepage. If this is all about buttons to visited sites, then I suggest using Bookmarks as they will always be there without the requirement of opening a new tab to see.
