Differences in a input text.

I gonna try to make me understand but my English is very bad and I
don't know how is the English name that I want.
When I write some text in a input text and I submit it the browser (I
think) save the text and will show it in a list the next time you
write the same text in the same input text, in the same page.
My question is. Somebody know how I can make that this list of options
don't appear?
I don't want because I want to show a database list of options.
Thanks.

It's called "autocomplete", and you can't control it - it's a browser
feature.
I don't want because I want to show a database list of options.
If you want to show a list of options, show a list of options instead of
a text box.

Simply, don't! It's evil, really evil.
Don't even try.
If you tried, you would probably not find. Or you would find an ugly hack
working for a specific browser only.

That's funny to see that whatever feature a browser provides, there will
always be people who wants to break it, usually because they don't like it
and think that everybody on earth has the same preference.
Did you know I saw somebody wanting to break progressive rendering?

Please, use HTML in a declarative way. You're not the owner of the client
computer.
There's a client/server scheme that shouldn't be reversed.
You should not impose a browsing style, or client will hate you for a good
reason.
I don't want because I want to show a database list of options.
I highly doubt that users will be confused by that, but I don't doubt that
users will hate you if you break their liked feature.
They know what a HTML form is, and what features their browser provide.
Users aren't all morons.
