This will be my last post on this.
Yes, this is entirely normal when you are not signed in to Chrome. You are not signed in to Chrome on any of the screen shots you've posted. If you are actually shown as signed in when you go to Chrome Settings then something is corrupt with your Chrome installation because that "little human" figure at the upper right near the minimize/restore-maximize/close button trio is typically replaced with the first name (or whatever you have in that position in the gmail account you're using, if that were "Ichabod Crane" then "Ichabod" should be showing). If you click on the "little human" the first thing that should show up in the pop-up menu is the actual gmail address that's being used for Chrome login and sync. If it's not there you're not logged in, if it is there I would click on it and see what comes up in the chrome://settings/manageProfile tab that appears with the "Edit" dialog showing up as the initial overlay. It makes sense to add a name, even if it's a junk pseudonym, so that it is absolutely clear both to yourself or anyone viewing a screen shot that you are logged in to Chrome. I guess it's possible if the e-mail address has no name assigned to it that the little human might still appear, but that would be confusing to anyone who saw it because it's virtually never what shows up there when one is actually logged in.
There used to be a way to stop this "Login to Chrome" screen being opened on every new tab via a checkbox on the screen itself. That's now gone.
It will not pop up all the time were you actually signed in to Chrome. It is not necessary to be signed in to Chrome. There's likely something out there on the web somewhere about how to get this behavior to stop. I did some quick searching but the results are predominated with discussion of the now-removed checkbox and since I do log in to Chrome and stay logged in "perpetually" I never get this screen anymore.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
