Google's Intelli-Sense Design

I'm curious, whats the best way to implement the design of this? I know it's Ajax driven, which I know how to do, but what is the actual drop down? Is it a custom select box, or something else?

TIA

You might do some more searching on "auto suggest".  That's kind of the term that's usually used to describe what Google is doing on the main search page.

Is this what you're talking about...

If so, then Google is doing it with a table.  You could also just as easily do it with a div or unordered list.  Then you'd just use CSS to style it up the way you want.
