Completion on the Web

After all the buzz around Google Suggest, and its use of the XMLHttpRequest Object, it is welcome to see other applications of this technology.

ObjectGraph developped the ObjectGraph Dictionary. “The data comes from a freely available online dictionary (a public domain English word list dictionary, based on the public domain portion of "The Project Gutenberg Etext of Webster's Unabridged Dictionary" which is in turn based on the 1913 US Webster's Unabridged Dictionary. You could download it from here).” They use this technology in order to auto-complete typed words and propose potential definitions in advance. More in the article How does it work?.

Interesting: Webster's Online Dictionary – The Rosetta Edition.
