Microsoft has what I want. When you write to their forums and you type the title for your thread, a list will appear under the input box. It looks like the image attached.
Well, I have a MySQL database which contains a name field. There is something like "Mother's meatballs with brown sauce" and "Granny's sausages". How can I search the top 5 most similar results from the database, when user inputs his/her title? The text user entered will be transmitted with AJAX to the search page using GET method.
Is there any simple MySQL query that does this? I know there's LIKE, but I think it's not perfect for this...
