Cracked windshield - got new one but its different

Recently I bought a 2011 civic and a few days ago windshield cracked due to a stone chip. I got it replaced by star auto glass, but the new windshield has a blue tint strip at the top . Is this normal because my old windshield didn't have it. Is there a way I can remove it?

The one you got is NOT OEM, bought from Honda Canada through a dealership, so it will be different.

You can't remove it. You could have replaced with an OEM windshield but I guess most people actually prefer having the blue tinted strip on top.
