    I have a galaxy s8.
    When I search something on Google/Chrome, I click a website result, and it opens it inside google, is still shows google.com at the top. I understand it helps with speed. I want to stop this.

    I already tried disabling the feature below, still happening:

    it still shows it in google.com as a mini preview thing:

    Try clearing defaults for chrome and Google app. Can't guarantee it'll help but I've had a similar problem with chrome before.

    Actually maybe it wasn't something similar. If I search something on Google the beginning of the webpage will be google search. That's just the name of the web page you've loaded. I'd assume if you searched with Yahoo the address would start with yahoo search or something.

    YES, AMP. Thank you! Now I know what it's referred to as.

    I read that 2017 article you linked me, the solution in it no longer works, as far as going to encrypted.google.com, it redirects to google.com.

    I found some other articles from spring 2019 stating there is No way to turn off AMP to date. You can just change the default search engine to duckduckgo, which works, but not exactly what I wanted. I prefer google's results and layout of results/news, etc...

    Anyways, shorts answer is, nope, Google doesn't want you turning off AMP.

    There are ways around AMP, I just haven't researched it because I'm not getting any AMP pages. I think it's because I use Adguard which is a VPN type ad blocker, though even when I disable it I don't get AMP pages.

    Here's a screenshot of autoblog on my phone. I did a search for autoblog and clicked on it from the results. Just opens the normal page.

    I dont get the AMP either when I just googled "Autoblog".

    Try searching "GLE Coupe 2020" and click the Motor1 result at the top.
    Or go to the NEWS section of google and click the "Motor1" result.
    It's spotty, some load normally, some AMP.

    Ok, so I did exactly as you said and I got the damn AMP page. :mad:

    So I went into Adguard and in the Stealth mode I changed my user-agent to the following...
    Code (Text):
    1. Mozilla/5.0 (Android 9; Mobile; rv:65.0) Gecko/65.0 Firefox/65.0
    Now the AMP pages are no longer showing. :D

    edit post:
    After further looking through adguard settings, there's a tab called "extensions" which has an extension called "Disable AMP" which would be a better solution than the one I mentioned above. Looks like you'll need Adguard.

    I've never seen this behaviour, and have never done anything to prevent it. I also can't reproduce it as described above, but then I don't get that search result anyway (probably due to not being American).

    However I don't use Chrome, so it could be that that's the reason.
