It is very annoying to type "n <enter>" and it goes on to search any query starting with "n" that I happened to have searched in the past instead of going to HN as it was the case for the last several years.
It is happening now with all my usual "shortcuts".
Chrome now is less a browser and more a Google widget.
I wonder if I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo it would still be the case.
Alternatively, use Firefox.
It's extremely annoying behavior and the go-to add-on "Enter Selects" that fixes doesn't work with WebExtensions.
How to reproduce the problem:
* Create a bookmark for "Hacker News" as news.ycombinator.com.
* In the omnibar type "Hacker New" and see that "Search with Google" is selected and that second suggestion is the bookmark.
I would like these to be reversed and the top bookmark/history/whatever item is selected over search.
If you have a bookmark "Hello World!" pointing to "example.com" and type "Hello" the selected option will be "Search with Google" and not the top bookmark entry.
Take a bookmark for mail.mycompany.com bookmarked as "Email" -- if you type "mai..." it will complete but if you type "emai..." it will search.
