This has been complained about since 2013. There are closed Chrome help comments about this and was never resolved. Since it is happening in all computers I would feel it is the OS changes as Microsoft and Apple compete for add revenue. However it does not make any sense to be on a paid movie site and attempt to search for a movie there and have it Binged or Googled over the internet. This is piracy of your keystrokes and should be outlawed. The fix is to double click on the sites search to keep it there. What a pain. I wish some one would start a new OS so I don't have to be ripped off with my data. Let's get a black box that will trap the data at the home network.
