How to make it so that Google Chrome does not send everything you type into the search/address bar to Google

Even with all the rage about the Google Chrome EULA, some of you have other privacy issues.

For instance, the Chrome browser sends everything you type into the address/search bar to Google, to offer websites to go to. It sends it keystroke by keystroke, and many of you probably have some concerns about this.

In this post, I'll show you how to disable that. You'll lose some functionality, but you might not care, since you gain some privacy.

Start by clicking on the wrench icon to the right of the Omnibox (yeah, that is what Google calls the address/search bar), and click on Options


This is what should come up:



Now, click on the Manage button, next to the default search.



This is what should come up:



Now, uncheck the Use a suggestion service to help complete searches and URLs typed into the address bar checkbox.



If it was already unchecked, great! If not, just hit Close and Close again, and you're done.

The stuff you type into the Omnibox is no longer being sent to Google. Joy!

There are many different types of gemstones that can be used for gemstone pendants. Large, dramatic stones make a bold statement while smaller, more delicate gemstone necklaces look great when teamed with other jewelry. Virtually any stone can be polished and this means that the range and choice is vast. Generally, high quality gemstone earring, such as fine sapphires and rubies, are not polished, as these stones look better when they are faceted. Lower grade precious gemstones, however, can be found polished and these can look stunning. Gemstone bracelet need to be held in a setting. The setting will allow the pendant to be strung onto a chain or a piece of thong.
