2. XT Instant Search module - COMING SOON
This module allows creating an instant search results page where the whole page (results, filters, facets, and pagination) is updated as you type, to provide end-users with a lightning-fast search experience.

The module shows a cloud of tags to offer shortcuts to the advanced search. The module can be positioned in other pages of the site as a way to lead the user to the advanced search.
