Am I right in thinking that the way this search engine works is that
the entire index is sent to the browser initially, and then the
browser locally searches that index? If so, that's a pretty neat way
of protecting peoples searches. Obviously, it wont scale, but you know
It feels like you're doing the search in the main thread as I type
into the search field, as it's blocking the user interface a lot. I
background the searching task onto a new thread. Or just get rid of
the whole "search as I type" thing. Gimmicks are fine, unless they
actually make the user experience worse.
Please provide https. At the moment, the search engine can be
trivially MITM'd and script inserted to log searches. Also, please
rethink your decision to let Google execute arbitrary code on your pages.
