Amazon US has suggestions, but other variants do not. There are probably other plugins we should review to identify where we can add this support.

eBay used to have an API:

<Url type="application/x-suggestions+json" method="GET" template="http://anywhere.ebay.com/services/suggest/">
<Param name="s" value="0"/>
<Param name="q" value="{searchTerms}"/>
</Url>

but they got rid of it.

The current search API is kind of a hack using Rover (eBay offers nothing official) and when we asked, they didn't have a replacement solution for search suggestions.

Add search suggestions to eBay. r=mikedeboer

I forgot about browser_eBay.js. I'm tempted to remove those sometime seeing as we have tests in toolkit now for those. However for now, I'll just fix it.
