I got it too. This sucks. Whenever I open a new tab, it's just blank. I have to click on apps now. 1 more click. :(

That's lame. Chrome has a built-in omnibar already.

From the other topic on this:
From: o0stoneduk0o | #006
Type 'about:flags' into web address bar and press enter.
Then ctrl+f (search page) for 'Enable Instant Extended API'.
Change the drop down box to Disabled.
A relaunch now button will appear, click that.
Then shazam! Old new tab page is back :)

Someone else said it should be chrome://flags but about:flags works just as well (or it did for me)

More accurate chain of events:

>click location bar and drag the mouse to select all the text
>move mouse to arrow on far right
>types into Google search
>clicks link.

Even better is when they use the google search bar on FF/IE to search and select the first link that leads to |
