If you were a fan of the old New Tab page in Chrome (with the large app buttons), the good news is that you can get it back...for now. Who knows when Google may/may not prevent you from reverting. Follow these steps to get it back.

1. Open a new tab in Google Chrome

2. Copy and paste the following into the Chrome omnibox (the URL bar) and hit enter:

chrome://flags/#enable-instant-extended-api

3. Turn off the ‘Enable Instant Extended API’  by clicking the drop-down menu and selecting the ‘Disable’ option.

4. Click the ‘Relaunch Chrome’ button that appears towards the bottom of the window.

5. Relaunch Chrome and BOOM! the old "New Tab" page is restored.
