Hi Elad,

Per https://www.chromium.org/tab-to-search Chrome/Chromium provides two heuristics that automatically add a site to the list of searchable sites:

1. On the website's homepage provide a link to an OpenSearch description document.
2. If the site does not provide a link to an OpenSearch description document but the user submits a form, then Chrome automatically adds the site to the list of searchable sites. There are a number of restrictions with this approach though. In particular the form must generate a GET, must result in a HTTP url, and the form must not have OnSubmit script. Additionally there must be only one input element of type text, no passwords, files or text areas and all other input elements must be in their default state.

For #1 and #2 Chrome/Chromium only adds sites that the user navigated to without a path. For example http://mysite.com, but not http://mysite.com/foo.

I think you can disable OpenSearch additions with some extensions like mentioned in:
