    Hi there, I had the same problem. I was using chrome as my browser and would always see those annoying red dots in my outlook tab. It reminded me of my old blackBerry phone which I had to get ride of. In short my gut instinct is that Outlook doesn't want to get ride of the red dots because it keeps the user looking at their webpage and therefor is more likely to keep users engaged.
    The work around to do to get ride of the red dot is to add "tab modifier" to Chrome which will allow you to remove the default outlook tab design to something more generic of your choice.
