Search Wikipedia Faster As-You-Type [Wikipedia]

Search Wikipedia Faster As-You-Type [Wikipedia]

Developer Chirag Mehta wanted a better way to search Wikipedia, so he put together a fast, dynamic as-you-type search box that loads results in a sidebar and the best match in the main panel. You can also use the search engine’s address — http://chir.ag/wiki/something/ — to go directly to search results for “something” (like using a Firefox keyword search). Here are the results for a search for “Lifehacker”. A few Wikipedia-specific search interfaces...
