How To Disable Google Chrome’s Action Box (The Plus Icon)

I don’t know how many of you have this new action box on Chrome yet. If you are on a beta or dev version of Chrome, you already have this.

.. and not everyone will like it.

.. especially because it removes the bookmarks icon from the omnibar and puts it under the action box menu. So, how do you remove it? It is pretty simple. Follow these steps!
