Neat, I just built exactly this myself for a feature! Was super happy with how simple and easy it ended up being.

Any ideas to improve are welcomed.

If this is a real project, you might want to consider debouncing your refresh() function so you’re not spamming your server on every key press.

UPDATE:

This is a temporary Safari issue where formElement.requestSubmit() is not supported. The easiest fix is to use a polyfill until the next Safari update where this has been resolved.
