ido is more intrusive whereas icomplete is just an unobtrusive
addon over the default minibuffer behavior that adds more commands
for “inline completions”, i.e. for browsing completions
without showing the *Completions* window, nothing more fancy.

My only complaint about icomplete is its default keybindings.
I find it more usable with following customization:

  (define-key icomplete-minibuffer-map [(control left)]
  (define-key icomplete-minibuffer-map [(control right)]
  (define-key icomplete-minibuffer-map [(control return)]
