Google suggest

Writing about web page http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1

Google Suggest offers possible matches for your search term as you type it in. It's done with XMLHttpRequest, but the Javascript on the page has been highly compressed, so it's hard to make sense of. Luckily, Chris Justus rides to the rescue with a rewritten, commented version of the code.

There are some other implementations too: here's an auto-complete search for CPAN and Dunstan's blog offers "Live Search" which is much the same idea. Worth adding to the "Could be useful" file.

  1. The first thing I tried was "who built the ark noah noah" and I got 276 suggestions.

    The second thing I tried was "why was the first thing i just tried on this google suggest business who built the ark noah noah". No suggestions for that.
