type-ahead search is slow

The best thing about google's type-ahead search functionality is that it's super fast. I'm a pretty fast typist and they still manage to help me fill out my search queries.

Not that I'm expecting google level speeds here, but it seems like the type-ahead search on the new site isn't as fast as it might be. For instance, if I want to search for "cut copy" and I simply type "cut", it takes a second or more for the search to fill out the autocomplete items. I have to actively pause my typing and wait for responses to fill out. At this speed, I'll likely end up just typing my whole query when I know what I'm looking for, instead of letting the search-ahead help me out.
