Windows 7: New behavior of Chrome icon

New behavior of Chrome icon

As of a few days, there is a distinct and confusing change in the way Chrome runs or, rather, the way it is presented in the taskbar. I have made a few illustrations that hopefully explain what my issue is:




is this clear as mud? I keep forgetting that Chrome is already running, look in the left-most corner where I'm used to the icon being - it doesn't seem to be running - and start a new instance where lots of tabs are suddenly 'missing', then I remember.
Why this 'new-and-improved' behavior?
Thank you.

Not got a copy of Win7 to check options but I would firstly check in the taskbar option that the Always Combine, Hide labels or similar option is set for icons

Naw, that's not it. It's set to Never combine as it has been for years. But thanks.

I don't know why this started happening but it only started today I think. I used to be able to enter "g" into the address bar and it would suggest "gmail.com" to me because that is my most visited site that starts with a g. If I typed "go" it would change that suggestion to "google.com". Now it...
