I'm using Chrome on a Mac and all of a sudden my Google search layout switched back to its old interface with a black bar on top.

I've tried logging out and logging in my account, cleared all navigation data, cache and cookies but to no avail.

It's clearly a Chrome issue since navigation with Safari is fine and I'm on a really fast connection.

Do you how I could get back to the new layout?

  • go to: chrome://settings/searchEngines
  • and set:
    {google:baseURL}search?q=%s&{google:RLZ}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}{google:assistedQueryStats}{google:searchFieldtrialParameter}{google:iOSSearchLanguage}{google:searchClient}{google:sourceId}{google:contextualSearchVersion}ie={inputEncoding}
  • or try:
    https://encrypted.google.com/search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&safe=off&pws=0&hl=EN&q=%s

In the end I've decided to reset Chrome back to its defaults, when you do that all extensions are automatically disabled. Everything appeared to be fixed but when I enabled them again I was back to the old layout.

Turns out I had an extension called Quick Javascript Switcher and I must've accidentally clicked the button to disable javascript for that page. D'oh.
