Does Rockmelt have dropdown search results?

In my original post on search client I talked about a feature where the search box, instead of taking you to Google, would instead show you a dropdown list of results. Well, it seems that the developers of RockMelt have thought of something very similar:

When you do a search from the search box, instead of taking you to Google, you get a column with the first ten results. You can tab through each result, which is pre-loaded into the browser, so you can actually see the Web pages behind each result in the full browser. This is designed to speed up searching, although at least initially I find myself tabbing through each link, if only for a second or two.

I doubt their implementation works exactly like my mockup, but I do hope they support the OpenSearch specifications for it.

 

Update: Yes, they do have dropdown search results! Here’s a screenshot from the RockMelt video:
