Chrome Android now shows the latest searches on its homepage
If you’re using Chrome on Android, you might have noticed your homepage changed slightly this morning.

By clicking on it, you immediately find yourself on the results page, without having to type the query again. Useful in cases where you have already forgotten the answer you were looking for before.

How to Disable Search Suggestions on Chrome Android
While some will certainly appreciate the time savings offered by this feature, others will regret being invaded by a search icon in the middle of the logos of frequently visited sites. Not to mention the fact that some research will no longer be relevant, or even outright are supposed to remain confidential. In other words, you may want to remove these nuisance suggestions.
Fortunately, the operation is not very complicated. If you want to delete a particular search, just hold down the icon and click on DELETE, as shown in the screenshots above. If, on the contrary, you want to completely get rid of the functionality, you will have to deactivate the flag corresponding to this address: chrome://flags/#organic-repeatable-queries.
