Something similiar to chregu's livesearch box should be implemented in coWiki as
an optional plugin. Additionally this functionality could be used to replace
drop-down boxes (for instance where username/group lists are in plae).

Implementation requires some change the html code comprising the search form,
and the creation of a php file in the web path that can query the database for
documents/titles matching the string currently being entered in the search box.
 An administrator-configurable option should be available for either full-text
or titles-only suggestions.

Another option would be to implement something similiar to google's suggest
(http://www.google.co​m/webhp?complete=1​&hl=en). This could be implented by
saving the search string to a database along with a count which shows that
search string's popularity. A suggest feature would show the most popular
search strings that contain/match the search string currently being typed in.
