Textarea Auto-Resize Plugin for jQuery

by Tom Kenny (@tkenny)

I’ve been looking for something like this for a while. Avoids the annoying problem of typing too much text and not being able to see all you’ve typed without having to scroll in a small box. It’s also smart enough to resize down when you delete text that has caused it to grow. I may even install it as a local browser script and apply it too ALL textarea fields I come across if only for my own sanity.
