Google, Google, Google, what did you do to my Chrome?

Okay. I’m a heavy user of Google Chrome. I use it ALL the time. Even on my iPhone. I just got used to opening up to the Chrome App page, but now on the desktop (Windows or Mac) when I open up Chrome now, I get this:

To get to the actual Chrome App page you gotta click that box of boxes; more on that below…

Okay, fine. Maybe this helps get people back to Maybe? I don’t understand. But typing in the search box doesn’t even work. If I type in the box, it jumps up to the Omnibar. Now I love the Omnibar and in fact I prefer it to this janky screen with a box to type in… but if you acually try to type in it, you get this:

Why? Beats me?

About the same time they did this (because Google updates your browser all the time, which IS cool) the mucked up the Apps page, but is had been the default "home page". To get there now you gotta click the box of boxes thing, remember?

I have about 4 or 5 that I actually use, but I have a few more that I test/try and basically never use again. So used to keep the one I liked on the first row…. ESPECIALLY GMAIL!!! It usually looks something like this:

But now when open the Apps page, my GMail button (and others) jump to a place I didn’t wan them go to!

I guess I just call 1-800-GOOGLE-HELP…. Oh ya, sometimes free ain’t great….
