Please fix bookmarks and menu line spacing.

I agree the spacing issue was fixed then Dev moved to Beta and the problem is back. When using a mouse and many bookmarks, the spacing is awful. If you want to keep the spacing make an option so we can change it please.

I only see 5 tiles in the homepage instead of the 10 that used to be there and also clicking the wheel button of my mouse doesn't open them in a new tab but in the same one.

Please return the new tab behavior. It's not very easy to get back a tab or set of tabs I recently closed. In addition it is also harder to open tabs from other devices.
I do not need a new tab to open a search bar when i already have omnibox. This change made no sense.

the new tab page is a step backwards. I feel like i am now using a browser of the old days where i set my new tab page to the search engine.
I dont need this- i use the omni bar, i will always use it.
I now might as set new tab to my favourite news website- or something i love. the new tab page is useless now.
I know recent tabs is now under the setting button. thsi is a good move, but i dont like the new tabs page at all.

Option to have reduced spacing on menus and bookmarks for laptops & desktops please. This is a badly thought out change. Having a unified interface across operating systems is one thing but to attempt the same thing across devices which are fundamentally different in terms how the user operates them and interfaces with them is misguided. It really is about time someone from Google commented on this issue. Maintaining a stony silence and treating us - the users - as though we are an annoying background noise is irresponsible and unprofessional. If you need to create a new position to interface between the user community and the development teams, let me know - I have years of experience!

Please may you fix the bookmarks and menu line spacing?
I found it VERY annoying.

Not liking the new "new tab" functionality. I have a bunch of shortcuts on the apps-page, and I like having it open as a new tab. Please revert to what it was earlier.

I also want to see a permanent option to use single-line spacing in bookmark lists and context menus.

Double spacing is a waste of space on a PC and just more scrolling-intensive to navigate through.

The "--disable-new-menu-style"
switch only works temporarily.
