Instant Product Suggestions With Zero Delay
The amazing speed of our Search Autocomplete extension is attributed to its revolutionary caching system. Aiming for the fastest possible search suggestions, the search cache is build up from the product titles, SKUs and short descriptions. Whether your Magento store contains a couple of products or ten thousand, our extension will directly generate product suggestions without delay!
The generated search results can be easily optimized by configuring the attributes used as product titles, descriptions and keywords and defining their search priority. By enabling the advanced SKU parsing option, SKUs are automatically divided into multiple keywords, generating more product suggestions for partial SKU queries.

Search Autocomplete comes with two slick dropdown menu themes and three search result layouts, making our plugin compatible with almost any Magento theme. Besides the single column list layout our extension now also includes a 2 and 3 column grid layout, which are especially useful to put an extra focus on your product images.
The extension's front-end display settings include an adjustable search suggestion dropdown width, preferred product image type selection and optional search query highlighting. On top of that you can also choose to show product prices, categories and CMS pages in the search results and set the maximum amount of results shown at once.
