How do I turn off Chrome Omnibox auto-complete in the Omnibox? I am very annoyed at the slowness of this feature.

Here is how you turn it off:

  1. Select Customize( the three vertical lines icon ).
  2. Select "Settings"
  3. In the 'search' section set: "Set which search engine is used when searching from the omnibox." to 'NONE'.

My list of search engines does not have a NONE option as described in the accepted answer. However, I managed to turn off auto-complete by clearing the browsing history (under Settings > Advanced > Privacy). This will require me to clear it every few days, I expect.
