In a conflict of ideas between the Search team and the Chrome team, I'm pretty sure it's irrelevant what the Chrome team wants.

yup we're seeing product teams getting shit on all over every product space if they're not core. Amazon did the same thing to their UI/Search team with their sponsored results that turned web/app search into a massive clusterfuck of unrelated "Promoted" items

And that is why I buy less and less on Amazon. If I don't have an exact product number, searching on Amazon is a painful waste of time.

So I search on Google or eBay, find a product number, run a search in Amazon. Until a few years ago, that resulted in a cheaper price but now more often than not, Amazon is not the cheapest (even accounting for shipping); and increasingly they are no longer the fastest either.
