Huge 90x90 square button in 728x90 text ads in Chrome browser

I just noticed that in Chrome for Mac, my text ads are showing 90x90 square buttons with a large arrow in the middle. WTF? The stupid arrow buttons are already horrible in Firefox and Safari, but this takes the cake! Anybody else seeing this?

Yep, posted about it here:

I saw an even bigger one the other day in a 320 s 250, it was 250 wide and about 75 high!

Pretty sure this isn't browser specific and yes there's a "Home Page Featured Discussion" going on the subject already. It's here...

[webmasterworld.com ]

Existing threads are great sources of information if one isn't opposed to reading.

Thanks Play_Bach for clearing this up with a screen shot. You have my apologies for jumping to a bad conclusion. This is actually a different issue than the 90 x 90 images discussed in the thread I mentioned above. It is in fact a 90 x 90 Nessie arrow of sorts. OMG, UGLY!

Why Chrome, well maybe G just feels more comfortable using their own customers as guinea pigs. Could also be a temporary size bug. All this experimentation is bound to lead to some real interesting side-effects along the way.

They're getting bigger, I have them on 336 x 280 measuring 336 x 69.

I have an image, where's the most suitable place these days?

Ridiculous. Is this just another attempt to make publishers finally give up and opt in for image ads by making text ads as unattractive as possible? I don't get it.
