Why suggections from server longer than 100ms will not work?
Researchers from Aalto University in Finland and University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom have collected extensive data about the typing behavior of 168,000 volunteers. Average users in this study typed 52 words per minute, while the fastest one typed 120 words per minute. It is almost one word per second. Assuming 8-char word, it is 6.9 char per second, so every char per 145ms. Substracting time for showing suggestion on web browser, we get 100ms as a MAXIMUM acceptable server response time for suggestion. Longer responses will not be shown at all most probably, because visitor will type another chars. Speed is not addition - it is REQUIREMENT.
