I upgraded Google Chrome to version 44.0.2403.89 and now I see new user menu.

enter image description here

Previously, there was a flag to disable it, but now there isn't. How can I remove this?

  1. Copy Chrome's .desktop file to your user's local applications folder using Terminal1:

    cp /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop ~/.local/share/applications
  2. Open the copied .desktop file with:

    scratch-text-editor ~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop
  3. Find the line Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable %U

  4. Replace it with Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --disable-new-avatar-menu %U

  5. Save and close the file.

  6. Restart Google Chrome and enjoy. ;-)

  1. If you fixed Chrome's icon in Plank by this metod, skip this step.
