Uhm, sure. You just need to find the search prefs-- which are increasingly hard to locate. I'm glad I put Advanced Search on my bookmarks bar years ago; I doubt I'd be able to find it today. Especially if I didn't already know it existed.
I thought I had autocomplete disabled in my Google prefs, but when I switched to a more recent (Mozilla) browser they started up again. <shrug>
I just started using a search box in the browser (that way I can skip the perdy custom logos about Millard Fillmore's birthday too).
