    i just noticed that softmp3 implemented a search as you type feature. a dynamic real-time search.

    i think that's pretty cool and i haven't seen this on any other tracker. i like to be suprised by new innovative features. well done softmp3.

    Do you mean as you're typing in the search box, a drop-down window appears below it with live torrent search results? It's a good feature, not entirely new but it's not widespread by any means. I hope more trackers implement it, as it's much better than a search results page in my opinion.

    they didn't built Rome in one day

    no, that's old and common.

    it shows you the direct hits in the browse page while you type in real time.

    check it out. it's really something i havent seen before on bt sites.

    FTN has had this for some time. Never been a fan of it myself. It seems to cater more towards the slow typer than anything else.

    you can't even hit the return button after typing your search term in the search field. the results are instantly there. there's no browse.php?incldead=0&search=keyword&titleonly=1 which takes time. i'm not talking about the suggestions in a drop down window in the search field. you can access the whole torrent database in real time while typing.

    that would be great for what, waffles or 0-day trackers.

    must be a swedish thing.
