I think we can definitely go with "Home" and will have to do some work for

So he was talking about a 'back' link. That requires a concept of history
that's not currently implemented. Home should be easy to do as it just goes
back to a single spot.

We need the idea of back/history in order to help with the autocomplete as
when you're on fullscreen, start a search, select an autocomplete charm
option, and hit the 'back' button it should take you to whereever you were,
however it's hard coded right now to return to fullscreen search results.

This is not done and will probably not be done by EOD Friday as the base
autocomplete branch is still in review with changes on the way.
