Imagine that you are supposed to type in an email address into a form. You would typically type an email address that may be stored in your address book from a MySQL database. There are too many emails in your address book to pre-populate into a list on the page. Instead you want to start typing and have addresses that match what you’ve typed so far appear in a drop down. We will fetch the emails to populate the drop down from the server, on the fly, in the background.
