Great for slashdottings, mefi-ings and the occasional kottkeing. e-ing. yeah.
I don't get it.
It doesn't work in Netscape or Opera, and IE (as well as the other two anyway, no?) already has autocomplete in text boxes. I couldn't get the example code to work, but it obviously revolves around the webmaster presupposing the input. If that is the case, why not a drop down? Otherwise, just let the browser autocomplete the way the user understands, by offering previously submitted queries.
this is test the messagte
how do i add this to my site?
