Turn off Chrome's omnibox searchbox results trumping web addresses

Google has done it again. Any search you make in any search engine (it seems) now becomes an autocomplete in the address bar (aka the omnibox).

Partial fix: Use 2 different search engines. Set Chrome settings--appearance--Show home button to any search engine you want, say, DuckDuckGo.com -- and then use that exclusively for search. Secondly set Set Chrome settings--search engine--Search engine used in the address bar to any OTHER site, say Bing.com and never use that engine for search via the web.

Partial fix part 2: In order to STOP search results from trumping web addresses enter chrome://flags/ into the box. From there use CTRL-F to find 'Omnibox Google Drive Document suggestions' - tick that to 'disabled.'
