Last night Windows 8 has updated my machine and now when I open my browser (Google Chrome) it opens in "Full screen mode", like before certain Windows apps would do. Now e.g. I don't see my taskbar when in my browser and when I ALT-TAB away the music playing from Youtube stops playing. How do I turn this thing off? I want Chrome to run as before.

I don't mean to be mean but it's just about googling.
