How to restore the "classical" new tab page on Google Chrome

If you are using the Google Chrome, you probably have noticed the new home page, with an huge Google logo, an useless and redundant search bar that just searches in the address bar and the most visited websites reduced to 8 smallish icons at the bottom of the page.

If I wanted google.com as my homepage, I would have just set it up!

In the latest updates, they already hid all the extensions under a submenu (hint: move on the side, you can widen the bar and show them again), now they remove the most used feature in their browser?

Are they trying to ruin it?

Luckily there is a way to restore it to its classical style.

Just go on chrome://flags and search for a setting called "Extended Instant API". Disable it, scroll at the bottom of the page and press save. Chrome will restart and everything would work as before.
