Live Search and browser woes
Inspired (truly inspired) by Apple’s forthcoming Spotlight tool (below), and the Live Search tool created by Chregu over at Bitflux, I’ve implemented a similar search method here on CollyLogic - but not without running into browser issues (it doesn’t work on my Firefox, or on IE Mac, or on early versions of Safari). This is all purely experimental at the moment, but feedback is appreciated. Read on for more…
What does this Live Search do then?
Do you want it? Ooh, Sir…
- MSIE 5.0 upwards
- Mozilla/Firefox (Since at least Mozilla 1.0) although it ain’t working on my copy of Firefox
- Safari 1.2
- Internet Explorer 5 (Mac)
I’m particularly interested in this Live Search stuff because of the potential use of the script to perform other live functions in tandem with my CMS. Anyway, forgive me for the cathartic waffling this morning - but it’s much better than purely banging my head against the office wall.
Also, check out Garrett’s beautiful implementation of the technique over at Maniacal rage.
