Disable that damn Google window in Android

I recently bought a Nexus 7 because the small size and high resolution makes it a viable alternative to carrying both a Kindle and netbook when travelling. But one of the most annoying ‘features’ is that any time I accidentally hit the home button when scrolling through a page, it brings up a Google window that I don’t want, which takes a couple of seconds to get out of.

Fortunately, it turns out to be easy to fix. Just go into Settings, then Apps, then Google Search, then disable it. Now you can actually scroll without bringing up the damn Google window.
