I felt it quite annoying, and I hope there will be several other people feeling it annoying.

To disable this google search from home/landing page of Google Chrome,

  • Open new Tab in Chrome
  • Write “chrome://flags/” in Address bar and it will open Chrome feature options
  • Press Ctrl+F for search and search for “Enable Instant Extended API”
  • Select Disable and restart Chrome
