IS there a way to prevent automatic autocomplete in the Chrome address bar? If I start typing an address and an autocomplete suggestion appears it overrides my original typing. Is there an option to make the user hit Tab or another key to actually select it? I would still like autocomplete to appear, but not select it by default.
To do that.
- Go to settings. (hamburge menu on top right corner)
- Then navigate to advanced settings.
- In the privacy section uncheck the box of Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar. And you are done.
Also the autocomletion depends on your search history. So making it clear will also help you.
