    I'm finding it annoying that the stock browser on my Galaxy S4 is storing previously visited urls in my address bar and suggesting them when I start typing a new address. I see an option under Privacy settings for 'Search and URL suggestions - Use a prediction service to display related queries and popular websites in the address bar as you type', which I have unchecked. I also unchecked 'remember form data'.

    I don't like the browser to suggest anything, anywhere, but particularly, I don't want it suggesting urls. How the #$%$ do I turn it off?

    I'm also unable to get google to stop using instant results. I looked all over and I can't locate an option to check to disable it.

    I'd really appreciate a lead on either of those topics.

    Thanks!

    May I suggest incognito mode?

    Not sure how you turn it off completely but if the url is in the bar above the keypad you can press and hold it for a couple seconds and a message will come up to delete the "Learned Word". (note I have a Verizon phone but likely the same).
