meta-/.  is the "you have to press a key to get a completion" version. This is last century technology ;-)  Anticipatory symbol completion, in contrast, is a more autonomous version that will offer completions as you type the moment when you begin to hesitate. Here is the CCL version:

Even Safari offers Anticipatory symbol completion in its JavaScript IDE.
