It would be great to see autocompletes result list to behave more like a normal html select list resulting in better user experience. Selecting an "option" from the result list should use the mouseup-event instead of the click-event resulting in the possibility to make a mousedown on an "option" moving the mouse to another "option" and selecting the desired "option" using a mouseup.

Additionaly it should not be possible to select text from an "option".

In order to prevent the selection of the text mousedown should return false (line 579) and a selectstart-event should be added which should return false too to get the same behavior on IE. Eventually this plugin can be used on the list at line 574.

For right selection behavior of an option i copied the code from line 580-584 and pasted this code into the mouseup-event at line 592. I also removed the click-event handler cause it is not needed anymore.

Thanks you for your work
