 The Live Search for

 - search installed plugin
 - install plugin
 - search installed Themes
 - install theme

 need some improvement for accessibility and in my eyes also for user

 When a user start typing, the search for plugins/themes starts right away,
 which is a bit distracting and confusing, especially if you don't type

 A possible solution could be

 - the result starts after 3 letters (not with the first one)
 - expand the timeout, when results get displayed
 - allow users to set a profile option, that they are slow typers (and lets
 them define the speed. I think "fast" and "slow" would be not detailed
