Google Drive Sync ugly client (Windows)

Google Drive is a place where you can create, share, collaborate, and keep all of your stuff. Whether you’re working with a friend on a joint research project, planning a wedding with your fiancé or tracking a budget with roommates, you can do it in Drive. You can upload and access all of your files, including videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs and beyond.

The latest version of Google Drive Sync (v1.19 as of this writing) looks incredible ugly for my taste. Look at this:
- last files sync (I don't need that info)
- to exit client I have to click 2 times (I don't keep the client running all the time)
- it's HUGE ! (good for desktop and big monitor, but BAD for laptop!)

If you're like me and prefer a previous version, you may find v1.16 on FreewareUpdate. This is how it looks:

Note: An alternative client for sync Google Drive is insync. Why use insync? See bellow:
