The Chrome bug that's not a bug

As some others have explained, apparently the new tab button missing the + in Google Chrome isn't a bug.  I thought it was a bug, other Chrome users (non-geeks) in my family thought it was a bug.  But Google says "User experience research on our end seems to have confirmed that this change does not decrease usability and in fact can lead to an overall improvement in people's perceptions of the UI (some participants described the change as "cleaner" or "neater")." I think this is crazy. I suggest you star the issue, maybe they'll come to their senses.
