We should add a user story for showing suggested search queries as you type in the urlbar, similar to Fennec.
Group: core-security
No longer blocks: metrov2planning
Summary: Story - Search suggestions in the Metro autocomplete panel → Search suggestions in the Metro autocomplete panel
Whiteboard: [story]
Is this what we want to implement?
Flags: needinfo?(mbrubeck)
Yes, that's the correct functionality.  I think we want to change the presentation to group the suggestions next to the search engine in the "Search" section of our autocomplete popup, somewhat similar to Firefox for Android (attachment 624041 [details]).

Thanks for taking a lead on this Eklavya!

I do have some ideas to improve auto-complete screen. Personally I think using one tile for represent each search suggestion is taking too much valuable real estate on this screen.

Michael will be leading a redesign of a new layout to better represent all information on this screen. Please follow bug963663 for updates. Thanks!
