There should be an options to perform a 'browse' search for authors, titles, or
subjects.  So if my browse search input is 'harry potter,' the results would
look like this:

Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse
Harry Lorayne's Page-a-minute memory book
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the goblet of fire

...with links to browse backwards and forwards through the alphabetical list of
titles (or authors, or subjects). Ideally, the search would highlight my search
string in the list, and allow me to return to that starting point after paging
backwards or forwards.

Zebra allows to develop this functionality. For example, this Zebra search:

  scan @attr 1=4 @attr 8=2 Harry

would return:

  Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse
  Harry Lorayne's Page-a-minute memory book
  Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  Harry Potter and the goblet of fire

with keyword hit count (number of biblio records having each title).

The scan functionality must be developed as an autocompletion text box, like borrower search box in Koha or Google search box embedded in web browser:
