The current version of Hoogle already uses Javascript to do a few
things (setting focus, adding quick search) - but if javascript is
disabled it still works perfectly well. I will stick to this design
principle. I haven't thought too much about the front end, as the
front end is comparatively easy compared to the back end stuff. Once I
have thought about it, I'll release something for feedback, and will
be happy to incorporate anyones suggestions. AJAX'y and auto-complete
would save me time when using Hoogle, so I would like to add it, but
of course will take privacy very seriously.
