The issue I am talking about
>When I use to type R into the address bar and press enter I would usually be taken to Reddit. Now if I type R in the address bar and press enter I get taken to the last thing I searched that started with the letter R.
Here is the fix:
>type chrome://flags/ in your address bar
>search for "Omnibox Google Drive Document suggestions" in the search bar on the chrome://flags/ page.
>disable "Omnibox Google Drive Document suggestions"
Edit: If you can, make sure you express your dislike of this to Google. They have removed other flags in the past yet the change that flag presents is still enabled. I would not be surprised to one day see this issue spring back up, but next time there might not be a good solution.
