Update placeholder after initial load of page #111

I thought I would bring this up to match native browser support of placeholder. After initial page load (<input placeholder="Old placeholder" />), I can change the placeholder attribute $input.attr('placeholder', 'New placeholder'). Native support for browsers properly updates the placeholder. However, using this plugin, clicking on the input, it will not be cleared and after blur, the old placeholder will be saved as the input value.

I am currently getting around this issue by triggering the focus and blur surrounding the attribute change:

$input.attr('placeholder', 'New placeholder');

I wanted to bring this up in case support for updating placeholders made sense to add to this plugin.


This would be a welcome enhancement.
