Hate AutoComplete and Would Like Option to Turn it Off

I have been using DDG for several years, and like it okay (although Google gives more complete results).

Recently, however, DDG's AutoComplete (AC) is driving me crazy. Today, I was trying to search on "who CCHR?" and all I could get was "who cache?", because AC was changing it instantly, no matter how fast I typed.

Really, I know what I'm doing when I'm typing, and I don't want AC at all.

Why should I be stuck with it.

I have a couple Apple machines I use, and I get this problem with both of them, when using Safari. Firefox seems okay in this respect.

What is the story with this "feature"?
