Thumbs down Not a Version Update Google's home page elbows onto Chrome's homepage

In the last hour I have just seen Chrome's Browser page been invaded by the Google Search bar with "Google" in a Large white font as well as the ancillary App links (and GMail too)
Leaves me in an awkward spot Do I drop the Google Homepage Tab?

Or continue with this mess of a page .Thought Googles policy was to keep it minimal and simple? This Is like the old Black Bar Layout issue on Gmail Several years ago where the Placement Was not thought out But it did get revised a few months later to the more familiar layout.I Personally had bad colour clash problems with my background/Wallpaper theme (am still using it in 2018 ex from when they launched the feature)
And the Forum Thread went seriously Viral with several hundred posts

I'm going to predict this will happen again until Google reverts back to the Vanilla Chrome OR (OK by Me) Makes up an optional More from Google Type mini button on the Chrome Tab page ..But looking at my browser page now, on the exposed links (alone) I can get to Google search in 5 links on the bookmark toolbar not counting "that Bomb" on the Chrome Favourites Link Tab page

I see the WU staff have posted a reaction post on Facebook and that's not showing the image to go with this subject, however I have started the debate off with my views, so ignore the image and add your comments OK?

Today 4 days later, they dropped that layout, but the proposed official Makeover is still being mooted. Sounds just as worthless for many users reading that proposal
