    Chrome is yucky...

    Well, the first thing you should do is get into Chrome's settings, there should be a setting to disable web history. After that, clear all of your history so that you start "fresh" with history disabled.

    Bad news friend... So I installed Chrome to see what's going on. I also did some research. Turns out, Google doesn't want you to disable your history. You can only clear it.

    The only solution is to do what medab1 has suggested above. The other solution to to switch to a different browser that will allow you to disable your history: Firefox, Opera, or IE.

    Gah... *shiver*... it will take WEEKS, WEEKS I say, to rid my computer of that Chrome smell...
