Recently while working on PrinceJets I found I really needed to filter a drop down on a ForeignKey relationship.

In short I had thousands of records to sort through.
I switched to Chrome as my main browser a while back after Firefox started updating every 10 minutes and never seemed to be as stable for me on OSX as it once was.

Today I stumbled on this post by Josh sharing a great presentation that I wished I had seen earlier.
