Thank you for the question.

Please, answer my questions if possible:

What are the benefits will bring the html5+css3 based template?
Does the free built-in templates "Light responsive" and "Ideal responsive" not suit the major needs?

Your feedback is very important for us.

Thank you.

A question regarding the live/AJAX search in AOM when adding products:

I would LOVE it if this is also used in "Related Products".
The system of adding items there works exactly the same, is it possible to transplant this functionality to Related Products?

I haven't upgraded yet, will be doing so soon on our test server.

This improvement relates not only to AOM, but to all product search dialog boxes in the admin area: Featured products, Related products, Feature Comparison, coupons and special offer features. You can check the demo to see how it works http://www.x-cart.com/classic-demo.html
