Google is testing new experimental toolbar UI feature, Script Bubble for Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome OS which shows extensions interacting with the page you’re on with an icon in the address bar. Clicking on that icon pops up a bubble with links to extensions installed on Chrome. If you click on any link in the bubble it takes you to chrome://extensions page and highlights that extension you clicked on.

Disable Script bubble feature in Chrome

Google has enabled and implemented Script bubble feature by default for Chrome Dev. channel users for now. You can disable this feature by visiting about:flags in browser and choosing “disabled” for Script Bubble. You need to restart the browser for the changes to take effect.

Since its an experimental feature we can’t guarantee it to reach stable version. Take for instance recently tested Action Box UI which now has been disabled in about:flags in Chrome, that has been part of of web intents testing.
