Chrome New Tab Page

After a recent Chrome update, it appears as though Google has broken the method of getting the old new tab page back that displayed apps. Instead I am being forced to look at a redundant second search bar that was put there to save people who didn't know what they were doing find the search bar. The omnibar worked just fine and does the same thing much better. Now everything takes extra clicks. Tons of people have complained about this and yet google appears to be doing absolutely nothing to fix it. Does anyone know a method that still works that allows you to access the old new tab page?
