I like search suggestions. They're frequently helpful.

However, sometimes I just know where I'm going and I can type what I want faster than find it in search, and the search suggestions and completions just get in the way, obscuring the window underneath that I'm trying to read.

I don't want to turn them off permanently, but is there a way to cancel (or toggle) the search suggestions and completions by keystroke? If I hit ESC, it cancels the current suggestions until I hit one more key. I want to cancel them until I hit return or toggle them back on. Or possibly delay any new suggestions until I've stopped typing at least.
