Yes, this kind of search is much better.  Good work!

I wonder, can bad people abuse the search for denial-of-service or is
the number of searches limited?

This has two sides.  I find it great that search works without
JavaScript and think users should not normally be required to enable
privacy-killing JavaScript.  However, search-as-you-type indeed is a
nice feature for the JS-enabled users.  I do not know how to
reasonably implement it though (and in what programming language).
Also the improvement of search-as-you-type vs. the current proposal is
not big.
