For me the new Google Chrome sucks big time. They are getting more like Microsoft and publishing software without proper focus group testing. Can I get my old version back?

My current version looks much like older versions. What is your issue?  New versions have security updates, so going backwards is not a good idea.

This seems to be a question that's popping up quite often about Chrome of late. From an answer I gave earlier this month...

want to revert back to a previous version, the following websites have positive user visitors reports by Avast web inspector and offer older version install files. You could try one of these;

Disclaimer: Never tried to install from the above sites myself.

I hope that's helpful.

It's mainly the tabs being extended to the top of the screen and being merged together. In the past it was easy to visually find a tab I was searching for plus I could click above any tab to select the whole screen. Now I have to go to the far right to select the screen as clicking above any tab selects just the tab.  If I terminate full screen mode I do have space above the tabs to select the screen but that's a pain.

Firefox's new version is the same but terminating full screen does not eliminate the problem.

Also the tabs came is is a sickening pinkish red color that looks terrible.

No pink here.

Windows 7 and up, go to Display Calibration and calibrate your colours (all sections), Make sure your display looks good.

Now uninstall Chrome, restart and install it again. Test.

I didn't reinstall but picked another theme called Black Carbon + Silver Metal which looks better.  I just prefer more space between tabs but this one will work. Thanks!!!

so it was in your choice of theme, would have helped if you mentioned that you were not using the stock chrome but a themed one.

Glad you found a theme that you can live with.
