Chrome stopped displaying apps in new tab after update

Yesterday chrome was updated to version 29. Usually I don’t even notice an update, but this time it was really apparent. When opening a new tab, now there is a search bar displayed with the most visited websites. I have no idea why anybody would come up with such a stupid idea. In fact, I got so irritated by it, that I decided to restore the old functionality of displaying apps in the new tab.

Here’s my Chrome extension that fixes the problem.
