Re: Chrome Browser

John Isige

Huh, thanks! I might have to try that. I don't think I've ever used
browser history in my entire life. I have all of the other stuff turned
off so I'll bet it's just pulling from the history, which I haven't
cleared, I used to have it automatically clear in Firefox when you
closed it but I don't know if the new version still has that feature or
not. I did clear it in Chrome at some point but if it's holding on to
stuff since, that's probably what's happening. I'm also fine with it
being all or nothing, since the nothing part of it is exactly what I'm

If Chrome uses browsing history to determine visited links, then if
you clear it, if  you use visited links in navigation, they will no

you'd better hope you never want to return to a site you didn't book
mark and don't have the address for.  You may well be able to find the
site with a google search or in some other way, but browsing history
is an important feature.
Sometimes, stopping a problem is worse than having the problem.

This is what I found on a forum site:

1. Go to the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar
2. Activate Settings
3. Activate Show advanced settings
4. In the Privacy section, deselect the "Use a prediction service to
help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar" checkbox

Keep in mind that the address bar shows matches from your browsing
history, in addition to predictions. If you don't want to see matches
from your browsing history, you must clear that as well.
Beyond that there is nothing more you can do. It is either all or
nothing. You cannot modify the behavior of how you dismiss
suggestions. Suggestions and autocomplete are the same service.

In addition, someone mentioned that it was apain to have to clear
browsing history all the time to stop the auto-complete behaviour and
suggested using incognito mode which doesn't preserve browsing history.

How fast are you typing?  If you either type quickly or turn off
speech, you
won't hear anything.  You likely know this but do you know that
anytime you
want to interrupt speech, you can just keep typing anywhere?  You will
probably get a solution but I'm discussing this as a general
principle.  I
never bother with such settings because I type fast enough that I
don't hear
such information but if I ever start to hear it, maybe because I'm typing
more slowly, I just keep typing.

Has anybody solved this issue with chrome? I have every predictive thing
turned off, but when I start typing in the address bar, I hear stuff
like, suppose I'm typing in mandolin cafe. I type an m, I hear "m
andolessons dot com", I type an 'a' and then maybe it thinks I mean
something else so I hear "mathmaze dot com selected instead", and so on.
It's really pretty annoying, particularly since I don't want it to do
that. Just let me type a URL and be done with it. Quit trying to figure
out where I might want to go, like I told you to.

Yes, it works well, and Chrome is so much faster than other browsers.

Is the Chrome browser accessible with NVDA? Is it worth trying?
