I am using Incognito Mode and today I have noticed that when I frequently visit some site in that mode browser logs it and even on not incognito mode it autofills in address bar making Incognito mode useless in my case.
Another fun thing is that the item is not in History so I can't manually remove it.
Couldn't find anything in Settings. Why is this happening?
BTW, instant search is disabled in my case.
Using the latest version to date.
- List item
- Send to Google Docs
- Google Translate
- Eye Dropper

It would appear you are running into the intended feature of the omnibox, it will give you auto-suggestions pulled from the internet as you type.
If you start typing 'superu' it may bring up superuser.com even if you have never been here before. this is not instant search as you mention you do not have enabled, instant search is an extension of this where it will actually load the best result, aka your feeling lucky, as you type. with instant search enabled it would already be loading superuser.com if you started typing it and it was the best result based on google magic.
