The plugin brings live search functionality to Textpattern with a very simple installation process. Once installed, search results will be returned “live” as users type into the search input field. You can see it in action on wilshire|one.

I really can’t take all the credit for this one. Much of the work was already done for me by Markus Kniebes who created the LiveSearch Extension for Textpattern which in turn is based on the BitFlux LiveSearch Solution.
