Faster typing by context sensitive completion

Ibus-typing-booster is a completion input method to speedup typing.

The original purpose was to make typing of Indic languages easier and faster by providing completion and spell checking suggestions. Originally it was forked from ibus-table. Since then ibus-typing-booster has been improved to support many other languages as well most languages except Chinese and Japanese are supported. Recently the capapility to type different languages at the same time without having to switch between languages has been added.
