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.
