Disable input text suggestions in Edge?

I have built a textbox dropdown AngularJS component which works great in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.

A feature of this component is that you type in a string, and then can use the up/down arrow keys to scroll through suggestions.

In Microsoft Edge, as soon as you hit the down arrow, the following text is added to the input box:

briefly explain your changes (corrected spelling, fixed grammar, improved formatting)

Is there anything I can do client side to stop this from happening?

<input type="text" />

To demonstrate this, run the above snipper, type something into the textbox and hit the down arrow twice on Edge. I want this to not happen, as it is breaking my autocomplete!

If I understand correctly, you are having an issue with the autocomplete feature. Simple add "autocomplete='off'" to your input and that should disable the feature.

<input type="text" autocomplete="off"/>
