how in God's name can I disable autocomplete?1 Recommended Answer
Super simple solution to this:
To disable autocomplete in your omnibox/address bar Ref
1. Chrome menu --> Settings --> Show advanced settings... --> Privacy --> uncheck the box next to "Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar"
Turning off Form Autofill for forms and stuff Ref
Chrome menu --> Settings --> Show advanced settings... --> Passwords and forms --> uncheck "Enable Autofill to fill out web forms in a single click" or manage your autofill settings.
How ironic that you would mark your own answer as "best answer" when it has been downvoted to oblivion.
I, like most others here, still want suggestions in the omnibox, I just don't want them to autocomplete. I want them to be opt-in, not opt-out. This already works in the search box on google.com. Do not default to a suggested completion when I hit Enter, I should have to hit Down and then Enter to select a suggestion.
Why is this so difficult for you to understand? We don't want autocomplete to "not trigger so frequently" (http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/Tlogm0rTyvI), we want control over how and when to trigger it. It's like having a backseat driver that "doesn't grab your steering wheel as often", it's not worth having them in the car. If they can keep their hands to themself, then their suggestions may be useful. DO NOT, under any circumstance, override my commands.
The issue is maybe phrased more directly over here (http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/rPbfvDpSeHg), but all the activity is in this thread, so pay attention!
