comment How to quickly change the first word in a Bash command?
Honestly, I think it's safest to just use Ctrl+a and delete. It's definitely not very slow.

That seems like the only way to go really. Still not going to accept any answers in case someone in the future comes up with something. Bounty awarded (had 42 minutes left).

comment Change Omnibox's default behavior to search
All of the answers thus far have just been adding steps rather than actually solving the request of switching the ordering of the Omnibox's behavior. I have a feeling this one won't get answered.

I can also use backspace. This doesn't solve my problem, just shows me another method of switching to what I want the default controls to be.

I would still like prediction services to come up under the drop-down and be able to select one of them via down arrow + enter. Also, regularly removing browsing history is not a viable answer because I want to be able to search for a variety of items, including things that are closely related to sites that I've browsed.

Minor spelling and grammatical changes.

comment Change Omnibox's default behavior to search
Adding Fauxbar is adding another step instead of reducing them. Unless I'm mistaken, this is just a replacement for the new tab page. This doesn't help when I simply want to search and navigate away from the current page. It does have capabilities of search from Omnibox but that requires typing F+space beforehand. Is there a way to override this requirement?

comment Change Omnibox's default behavior to search
I just stated OSX because I have just recently begun being bothered about this which coincided with my starting to use OSX. I didn't put an OS tag on this because I wasn't sure offhand if it was a problem in other OS's.

It's such a pity that Apple locks down their software.
