I'm not keen on sending Google any more information than necessary, and "Search Suggestions" in the address bar (wherein Google gets a recording of every URL I enter) is certainly not something I'm interested in.

I looked hard and couldn't find a way to disable it. Please don't tell me I have to switch browsers to avoid Google's "gradually make users think data mining is a-ok!" strategy.

Check if you have the latest "Google search" app from the market. Download if need be, then open it.

It will be in the app drawer. Hit menu, then settings, then web, and finally, disable web sugestions.
