To disable or remove the "Switch to This Tab" suggestions in the Chrome or Brave omnibar, follow these steps:

  1. Access Chrome Flags:
  • In your Chrome browser, open a new tab and paste chrome://flags/#omnibox-tab-switch-suggestions in the address bar and hit Enter​.
  • In Brave, the same flag can be accessed using the above step as Brave is built on the same Chromium engine as Chrome.
  1. Locate and Disable the Flag:
  • Locate the flag titled "Omnibox tab switch suggestions".
  • Set the flag to "Disabled" from the drop-down menu.
  • Restart your browser for the changes to take effect.
  1. Additional Info:
  • This feature was noted to have changed with Chrome version 69, where the omnibar began offering a "Switch to tab" option when a domain already open in a different tab was entered​​.
  • If the UI or flag names have changed in more recent versions of Chrome or Brave, it may require a different approach to disable this feature.

This method should effectively disable the "Switch to This Tab" suggestions in both Chrome and Brave's omnibar.
