AutoComplete is a rich interactive feature which simplifies the input process in a form on a website or in a web application. Typically it will contain a pre-compiled list of items and suggest a new item from the list matching each character typed into the input box.

Examples include Yahoo!'s excellent interactive AutoComplete Search Suggestions[1], TAXI's jump menu[2] and Facebook's "Friend Selector tool"[3].
