Has Chrome changed it's look/layout in the past few days or did I get hacked? 1 Recommended Answer 16 Replies 26 Upvotes

Just a bit ago I did a search on my desktop and the search results look really odd. 
See the attached images. 
In the first image you will notice that there are icons next to a blackened url with the blue part underneath instead of the usual blue result with a green url under it as seen in the 2nd image. 
My desktop is Windows 10 Pro (1909).
Chrome updated to "Version 79.0.3945.117 (Official Build) (64-bit)" when I was investigating all of this and checked to see if it was up to date.
On my laptop it looks the usual way.
Is this a new change or have I been hijacked?


So far I have turned off Chrome sync and turned it back on.
Uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. (An adventure all it's own!)
Scanned my desktop with Malwarebytes Free Edition: Nothing found.
Scanned with Bitdefender Paid version: Nothing found.

Please advise and thank you for your time!

Yeah my search results look the same as your first attachment. Literally this morning/afternoon it was normal and then randomly when I did a search like 10 minutes ago it was different . . . . weird. Immediately searched if others were having the same problem. Hopefully, just like with the Google Images layout change that happened a while back, someone will make a chrome extension that fixes it
