Behind The Scenes of Chrome’s URL Predictions
from Chrome Story by Dinsan Francis

I type C into the omnibox and Chrome knows that I want to go to Chromestory.com, (99.99 times that is). I type Y and Chrome knows I want to open Youtube.com.
So, how does this happen?
chrome://predictors/ can give you some details. It stores the predictions that Google Chrome has made for you and the some insights in to the accuracy of such predictions.
There are also 3 values: hit count (how often you type those characters), miss count (how often you pick a different suggestion) and confidence score = hit_count/(hit_count+miss_count). Check “Filter zero confidences” to remove entries with a 0 confidence score. Green entries have a 1 confidence score, which means that the text is always associated with the URL.
Take a look. I am sure you will find this interesting.
