I really like this plugin in general, and it does almost exactly what I want it to. However it has a small but critical misstake for our website where the search time is > 1 sec for some reason.
The timeout method for with canceling of requests when more letters are added exists, however the time spent is still dependant on how many characters you change before letting it complete...
The solution I made was to make the timeout actually have a time (it's in ms, not sec btw), and CANCEL the timeout whenever a new letter is added, forcing it to only do the search if no new letter has been added for so many milliseconds.

Great plugin but missing some customizations

Unfortunate that it can't include tag nor category results. The width is defined and can't be adjusted outside of customizing the CSS. Other than these issues - it's a fantastic plugin.
