Today I have a New Search Tabs icon (hover over), on my Google Chrome Tab Bar?- I clicked on it, and it just Minimized my browser?

I do a Full Scan every day at 1pm (only takes 3min), and it was clean.

I did a negative Google Search.TabSearch.jpg.d647eb44722a61c92d80714f2206f7c8.jpg

Have you tried disabling browser extensions? Do you have detection of potentially unwanted applications enabled?

If nothing helps, try uninstalling Chrome, delete the browser user profile and install it from scratch.

I have that too just happened yesterday, im pretty sure its just an update to the browser. Apparently only chrome OS devices had this feature but now its available on windows and maybe mac and others.

I did another Google search, and this is an experimental feature-

to Disable it, and remove icon- copy this to search bar, and Press Enter, click down arrow on box/Disable/Press Relaunch icon...

chrome://flags/#enable-tab-search

Open/close browser twice
