The incremental searching is often too rapid to be useful in the Web Inspector.
We should wait a fixed amount of time typing stops. This might let us remove
the 3 character minimum.

The wait time could be inverse to the search query length too. Shorter string
have a longer delay, so the use can type more. As the string gets longer the
delay could shorten.

We might just want to ditch using WebCore's concept of incremental. Or consider
this for all input search fields.
