I'm using Google Chrome and I'm wondering if there's a way to disable items from my history appearing in the dropdown when I search or type a URL?

I'd like to keep saving my history in the browser, but just disable the searching from the omnibox.

Try running Chrome with the disable history suggestions flag, --disable-history-quick-provider.

Do you know the way to do this on a Mac? –  Volomike Apr 17 '13 at 20:05
