improve documentation search usability

Currently you use some sort of search as I type ajaxy thing for your documentation search. I'm not sure if it's because I'm on a high-latency connection (satellite) or what, but it is *completely* unusable for me. It would be nice if, like Google, in addition to search as I type, I could also type in my search query and submit a form *without* AJAX.

As it stand now, the only way I can search the documentation on your site is to go to Google and search for

site:digitalocean.com "my search term"

It's not a big deal, but it is a bit annoying.

    Thanks for the feedback will look into it, perhaps implement a timer for successive requests so it happens less frequently for those customers that are on slower connections.
