    autocomplete search box

    has anyone experimented with an AJAX autocomplete feature for search boxes?

    This would send a small amount of data between server and client, but is the latency too slow to be useful?

    You could try out the performance by using the S60 web browser on any website with autocomplete. The techniques and performance will be identical.

    Since autocomplete fields require frequent client-server communications, some client-side caching could be useful (since it'll save network traffic), but it depends a lot on the number of possible keys to autocomplete.
