I've written this post just to test the effectiveness of Yahoo's new Y!Q contextual search tool.

I don't think I will use it as a permanent feature of this blog, since the implementation is somewhat awkward. Having to put the relevant text in a hidden form field is rather sub-optimal. Anyway, it's another interesting example of the use of the XMLHttpRequest object.

There's a quirk, though: it works with Firefox 1.0 on OS X but not on Linux. So, if you are using Linux, don't bother to click on the “Search related info” button.
