The new auto-completion functionality from the Discovery team has been integrated as a generator in the API (T121430), which means that we can plug it in when performing searches from our Search bar. We can now do an A/B test of the old prefixsearch vs. the new autocompletion, and measure the resulting clickthrough rate.
- This should be feature-flagged for Beta only, since the generator itself is still experimental.
- No changes needed in the EL funnel, AFAICT. Just switch out the generator!
