Google Suggest is great--the gap between 'in a blink' and 'however long it takes for a browser reload' can mean the diference when you're drilling down to your target. It's also good to remind people how capable browsers really are. For the right datasets, though, you can go one step further, and avoid the XMLHTTP overhead alltoghether. A good sample dataset is the full text of an O'Reilly book, say, XForms Essentials. See what I'm talking about at the demonstration page (JavaScript required).

I posted some technical details on my weblog.

What other features would you like to see in an application like this?
