Re: [gotze] Suggest query (as in Google Suggest)
I decided not to write a plugin, but simply post all the relevant files here. It works, but the CSS is not perfect yet. If there are any CSS gurus out there, how can make it more Google like, I'd be happy to know!

The LiveSearch feature makes use of the SearchLogger plugin to generate the list, so you need to have this plugin installed, and it should contain a reasonable number of entries for the LiveSearch feature to make sense.
