Chrome 83 already supports easy removal of autocomplete history in the address bar

Friends who use their browser regularly will inevitably leave a lot of self-made history in places such as the address bar. But for privacy-conscious people, Chrome still has plenty of room to improve and improve. If you want to keep secrets about other people who use the same PC, it’s hard to selectively remove a site from the list. Not to mention that many people don’t know how to do it — because you need to hover over it and then use the Shift-Delete key combination.

Chrome 83 already supports easy removal of autocomplete history in the address bar

The good news is that Google has solved the problem on Chrome 83. Techdows reports that users have been able to easily delete suggested sites in the multi-function address bar with a single click.

As shown in the image above, when you hover over an entry, Omnibox displays an “x” mark on the right side of the interface — a click of the mouse to complete the operation without the need for cumbersome key combinations.

When the operation is complete, Omnibox will not be prompted to complete it automatically the next time you enter the same text. Unfortunately, this feature is not yet available to microsoft’s Edge Dev development branch.
