Fixing Chrome 88’s suddenly broken custom search-engine behavior

Fixing Chrome 88's suddenly broken custom search engine behavior

[C'mon Google!] In the last 24 hours or so, the standard Chrome
"custom search engines" shortcut behavior (e.g. yt<space> to search on
YouTube), that I've depended on for many years, stopped working in
Chrome 88.

To fix it: Go to: chrome://flags/#omnibox-keyword-search-button
DISABLE. Then RELAUNCH.

Please don't suddenly change stuff like this, Google, without any warning or
explanation! And please don't deprecate this fix!
