Do long drop down lists make you want to send out an assassin and hunt down web developers? Then I have the ninja for you.
Ninja Search JS - the Greasemonkey Script (aka ninja-search-js) converts all nasty, long drop down lists into autocompleteable text fields; and then then snap back into their drop down list form when you've selected an item.
See the home page for more information, a demo, and the downloadable Greasemonkey/GreaseKit script.
Ok, let's put the installer script here too.
The icon was original developed for the Cocoa application Ninja Search, for which the idea was adapted into a Greasemonkey script. So I kept the name and thus got to keep the cool icon :)
