Today when I searched on Google, I noticed the titles of my results weren't as detailed as previously.  I hadn't changed any settings etc, but don't know why it's different all of a sudden.  It's ONLY this way when I'm logged into my Google account and searching.  If I log out (or use Incognito browser, btw I use Chrome) it gives me the detailed result titles.  Attached are 2 pictures of the same search, one on Incognito and one on normal with my account logged in.
 

OS:  Windows 7 - 64bit

Browser:  Google Chrome Version 42.0.2311.90 m

not sure why it has any effect if you're logged in to google or not, but it seems as though it's a google thing to make searches more efficient? they're modifying the page titles based on how they think they should look compared to the site's title tags in the actual code.

Is there any setting perhaps that can make it look "normal"t o me again?  I really prefer the extended search result titles, and this literally just started happening yesterday,  :(
