editableSelect is a good tool to replace large drop-down lists, without actually replacing the drop-down element itself.
It allows the users to click on the drop-down and if they don't find the appropriate option in the list, type it in by their own in the drop-down header.
The plugin works by replacing the drop-down header with a normal text input element.
A demo and usage instructions are included with the download. Requirements:
· jQuery 1.9 or higher
