Database searches … now with autocomplete!

Yifan Zhangxu has been working on this website behind the scenes for several months, and we thank her for her fine work. In her final assignment for SingAboutScience.org, she added an “autocomplete” feature to the database search page. If you start typing a word or phrase into a search box other than the Website URL box, some possible entries (though not the only possibilities) will appear. We hope this feature reduces the number of searches that lead nowhere due to misspellings, and generally makes songs easier to find. However, there’s a chance that people will find autocomplete suggestions more distracting than helpful. Either way, please let us know what you think!
