You might also want to try pabbrev.el; it's tab completion with
continual, as-you-type feedback. While some people find this a little
disturbing, I think it's great and very quick. In general, pabbrev.el
is so wonderful that I think the author should be given a Nobel
prize.

I leave M-/ bound to hippie expand, for when I want to complete
"deliberately", as it were.
