I'm not entirely convinced how useful that is.

that shouldn't be hard to do, since they know the most searched topics on the net are. Just match that to what you are typing in and bring it up on the box.

Thou it'll use up a little bit of bandwidth than usual as it constantly sending data back and forth as you type.

If it's a single word then yeah, not very, apart from assuring spelling. However, if you're looking for a topic that contains multiple words then you get an indication of how many hits a certain combination is going to return.

And thus can pick a more likely result set first time around. If you see what I mean.
