I am using version 70.0.3538.110 the last known version that has no reports of forced UI change. The old 71 version on 12-04-2018 is reported to have the same issue of forced UI.
Follow the same steps:
chrome://flags or chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md
Go find UI Layout for the browser's top chrome (skip if used direct link)
Tips to help you with Chrome problems you might get annoyed:
Use your phone as login if you have a very long password.
If you are worry about viruses, install Pop-up blocker it won't stop all viruses but it will stop anything that might download.
Have Extensity If Pop-up blocker does not work. It will stop all extensions.
If Chrome 70 is a threat and do not want to use it. Research browsers close to its source code: https://alternativeto.net/software/google-chrome/

Thank you very much for this! But I have a question though before I download the link. Will all my bookmarks and favorites be deleted with my browsing data? Or is there anyway to keep those without having to bookmark them all manually in the old verison?
