    Oh, yes, right. Thanks a lot. I wonder how it switched on its own. Cheers buddy!

    That is a Search Toolbar. Normal behavior. It should not have popped up, unless something made it do that. Chrome normally does not enable that search bar. It is a good thing to have, if you do a lot of searches all of the time.
