Yes, that would be very nice.  And then ecomplete completion over the
results, like most other browsers have.

There's a privacy issue here, though, so it should be possible to switch
it off.  And perhaps eww should have a porn, I mean anonymous, mode
where nothing is recorded: Neither cookies nor history.

Also the number of times it's been visited so that ecomplete can rank
the things you're most interested in first.

These can be stored directly in ecomplete, so that's not necessary.
