Setting chrome://flags/#remove-ntp-fakebox is gone. Is it local issue or just planned? I hate this useless "fake" search bar in the middle of new tab page. Can anyone help please?

The reason it's there is that many many people were typing "google" into the URL box - which caused a google search for google.
then they were clicking in the results for "google.com"
then they were typing in their search term.
 
Is this box just hiding your wallpaper ? can you not just ignore it ?

can you not comprehend that someone might not want that on their new tab page instead of being a dick

If you're accusing me of "being a dick" just for explaining why it might be like it is, then...

It's not possible at the moment to remove it in stock chrome options, but you can run an extension to change the the new tab page to any URL you like.

Then why Google deleted this setting for advanced users? What's a point?
