"Search while you type", please stop implementing this

I'm so tired of everything having to be all Javascripty and do searches while I type.  I just don't need it.  Why?  Because it makes it that much slower.  Let me type in the entire word, then you can search.  Unless your search engine is so ungodly fast that it will return relevant results in 1ms, I don't want this feature.

The thing that makes me feel this way is Office 12.  It insists on searching for everything while you type, and is much, much slower as a result.  Now I read on Thurott's blog that Thunderbird is doing something similar.  When will it end?
