typing into the search box is paintfully slow.

Typing into the search box becomes painfully slow when the collection is large. In a way this defies the purpose of the search box.

Would it be possible to introduce a 0.5 to 1 second delay between entering the last character and triggering the search? This would allow for a larger string to be entered before the search is initiated.

The time delay may be a possible solution to the complains with the autocomplete feature too:

    We'll make the delay configurable or perhaps even adjust it dynamically, but note the " workaround. (Only the opening one is required.)
