LiveSearch – Search Results As You Type

Now, this is a bit of a downer. LiveSearch looks like an excellent way to search because, as you type search results pop up magically!
Unfortunately it’s licensed under the Apache 2.0 License which is incompatible with the GPL, the license uner which WordPress is distributed. It would be legal to use it here without distributing those modifications, but that’s of no use to anyone else and I don’t want to maintain yet another source tree! Time to talk to the author…
I just noticed, CollyLogic has a “Live Preview” of your comment as you type it. That’s nice!
Here’s what it looks like in action! (via the support forum.)
