There's a negligible delay at startup while it parses all the stacks in use, but then no delay while you're editing. Might be worth refactoring the SE if it's actually doing a lookup for every keystroke.

No autocomplete doesn’t do all that much more per keystroke than the SE did previously unless you are editing placeholders. It was getting the linkText of the selection though and this takes a surprisingly long time for fields with a lot of content. I’ve tweaked things so it does’t need to do that.
