fix font size in Google Chrome’s omnibox

Running the dev-build of Google’s Chrome web browser has provided me only one issue in the last years… sometimes the font used in the omnibox it’s showed bigger than usual.

It makes the browser simply look bad, even if on my machines has never reached the size shown in the screenshot above (which gave also functional issues).

Today I’ve decided to put a stop on this and made a quick search. Seems that there’s a little bug that can be ‘solved’ pointing your browser to the configuration page available at


and then disabling the "Enable Instant Extended API" variable (via →). Hope this helps somebody else!
