I don't recommend it..what if you want to type a word? Wow, will that be extremely annoying.

Instead of mistakenly typing / you'd be typing a command that is inputted after pressing / and then a letter and then enter :).

It's a pet peeve for me, it'll be annoying..well at least for me...

ermmm.... read the post from Sk3tch and Choli.... use CTRL+<character> :undecided:

The reason why CTRL is needed is because you should be able to type the command without the use of the list and if CTRL wasn't used, you couldn't do that anymore...

PS: blah... ES was faster :p....

ES and Cookie: The suggestion is very good: You press / and the command browers appears. Then you start typing a command, like /c and then in the command list there would only be the commands that start with /c . You continue: /cl and then there would only be /clear and /close, etc...

At any moment, you can
-press enter or tab to insert the selected command in the command browser.
-press Esc to hide the list of commands
-user the up & down arrows to change the selected command.

That would be like when you're programming in VC++ or VB and you type a function and a tooltip with its parameters is shown, or when you type a dot and a list with all the attributes, methods, etc... is shown. That's very usefull.

that would only happen when you start typing a message with a / . That wouldn't happen in any other case.
