So, recently, on the Chrome new tab page, the message "Get a Chromebook for the holidays" has started to appear. (Others have witnessed similar behavior)

enter image description here

I want to know how I am supposed to get rid of it. Clicking the "X" is not a permanent solution.

I use Chrome all the time, I don't get this ad, default startup procedure. – Ramhound Nov 21 '11 at 21:28
I'm sorry, I accidentially clicked on edit. I don't know how I can remove it :-/ – Martin Thoma Nov 25 '11 at 5:46

With the Speed Dial extension you can customize the new tab page to have links to whatever pages you want. This replaces the default new tab page, which will eliminate any ads you might be seeing.
