Google-chrome – How to get a similar awesome bar (from Firefox) in Chrome


Before switching to Chrome, I always used Firefox, and I always really liked how you could type into the address bar and it would search (a fuzzy search!) for pages that were in the history that matched.

In Chrome, the "results" are just a bunch of search suggestions from Google that I really don't care about (if I want to use a search engine, I'll just go to Google). Is there any way to get Firefox-like address bar searching in Chrome?

Best Answer

You indicated in one of your comments that you want to turn off the search suggestions feature. To do that:

  1. Click the Wrench menu.
  2. Go to Preferences.
  3. Go to the Under the Hood tab.
  4. Uncheck Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed into the address bar.

Chrome will now only suggest results from your browsing history when typing in the address bar.
