The Chrome Omnibox (search box) is now putting searches ahead of URLs.
Anyone else using Google Chrome experiencing this new problem? It's strange that I just started noticing it, but it's driving me nuts!?! Don't know why it's been around more than 2 months, and I'm just now seeing it. Was there an updated version of Chrome that did this or is this a server side switch and they decide to torture a random set of their users?
How do you stop the address bar from being a search box?
I've cleared the search history in my Google accountWhich *** thought it would be a good idea to include the search field in the address bar?!
I've cleared the search history in Chrome
I've turned off the Web & App Activity
What am I missing? or is there no solution other than abandon Chrome?
Wrinkle: I am NOT logged into the Chrome browser, but I am logged into GMail/Apps/Account inside the browser. My browser history seems to be kept, and I'm not finding another way to shut it down. I think that's where it's getting the saved searches. I'm tired of searching for "bottles" whenever I'm trying to get to bogleheads.org.
