Could you please try the attached patch (where the mode is enabled by default).

Easier can be only one thing: to use arrows and navigation keys to navigate
completions from the minibuffer.  So the main question is on what condition
to activate these keys (instead of allowing them to search in history)?

I enabled the keys only when the *Completions* buffer is shown and the
highlight completions is active. And added a hook to remove the bindings
when minibuffer-hide-completions.

Since making TAB more DWIM doesn't work, what about the following solution:
activate completions navigation keys and display the completions buffer
only when there is some input in the minibuffer, i.e. when the minibuffer's
content is different from its default value.

Please try this closer to zsh experience implementation.

Or similar to this https://api.jqueryui.com/autocomplete/#option-minLength
activate completions only when input is longer than the minimum number
of characters.

I will give a look.

If this patch is too much code for adding in simple and minibuffer, I
would try to make a separate file with a mode. WDYT?
