This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.

A lot of people did not seem to like this decision when it was rolled out (google discussion thread) and has been asked quite a few times in support (you'll find some suggestions on how to get around this here). To summarize info that is in that thread, you will need to run some script/extension/addon to remove the tabs which is browser specific of course. For example,
Other browsers? Not too sure of but other people can probably add to the list.
I've just tried the chrome extension and it does seem to work as advertised.
