I think most people don't care about tinkering with the stock keyboard. Neither do I, but yesterday, while I was just messing with settings, I found an interesting thing in the stock keyboard preference. There is an option to actually do aggressive prediction on pressing the 'space' or any punctuation marks. This is really good for those who have a really small screen or big fingers. If you want to see the difference follow the steps to enable it:
1. Go to 'System Settings > Language & Input' and select the 'Settings' icon.
2. Tap on 'Auto-correction' and select 'Aggressive'.
Tip: For previous word based prediction tick the 'Next-word suggestions'
