WhatfettleGoogle Suggest


Google Suggest is very cool! A useful replacement for the vanilla search page. Via Joel.

Update: Adam Stiles reveals how it works. The onkeydown event invokes a HTTP GET which returns the suggestions as a Javascript function, e.g http://www.google.com/complete/search?hl=en&js=true&qu=paul+downe. An interesting combination of a Web service and self modifying code. What’s amazing is how smoothly this fine grained chatty interaction works.
