Google seems to be caught in two minds as far as the New Tab page on Chrome is concerned. The search giant has just released Chrome Dev 59, and once again the New Tab page has been tweaked. This is the third time Google has altered the page, with first big changes coming in version 54, followed by version 56.

Following are the few screenshots of the new Chrome Dev 59, alongside the Chrome 57 variant. As you can notice in the images, Google has removed its big logo in favor of a small icon in the search bar. It seems more refined, with good usage of space. Recommendations and recent downloads/bookmarks are much more accessible with the new design. In case, you can’t notice these tweaks, enable the #ntp-google-g-in-omnibox flag.
