This seems to be a totally unanswered topic, please enlighten me but...
I don't want ANY action to take place within the Google Now launcher for default browser. I simply want to click on the search box and have it display results for me within Google. I can't get it to stop "asking" for a browser or going to Chrome or going to the default browser. Why can't I simply turn this off?
The default browser constantly pops up unrelenting, not allowing me to use my Google card settings, and simple search box. If I set a default browser, it will actually launch Chrome right out of the Google app, not allowing a simple search within the app.
Going into privacy and turning off "Open web pages in app" does not work, it still opens Chrome. There must be a way, beacuse essentially Google Now cards is useless and the Google Widget is useless, because it always opens Chrome under all circumstances.
