Google chrome fail

Many times I pop a questionable website address into a search engine to see what kind of scam it is.

Well can’t do that in chrome, if you put an address in the google.com search engine it now plops you right into said website.

I can’t say I or any other human would ever want this behavior,
if I am searching for a website in a search engine I obviously want related text commentary on said site IN OTHER SITES and would never want to visit the site

I guess google both search engine and chrome are on their way out as they have no moved to total useless garbage status

That's curious. I'm stuck in Chromium under Raspian Linux. There's no menu bar, history or bookmarks in the user interface.

But when I enter something in the omni-bar it gives a drop-down with search or direct choices.

What happens when you try a non-evil search engine: DuckDuckGo, Start Page, Web Crawler, Yahoo?

remove the .com off the end and you will get a search result

If you go to "google.com" and enter it in the search bar it still works as well.
