Popup menu auto-locator

Here is another one I noticed today.  If you happen to click on a pop up menu that goes beyond the usual 3 - 5 items, you will surely not like having to scan through the entire list until you find what you are looking for.  Here is one I had to deal with today:

I was looking for freenode and luckily the list was sorted alphabetically.  Ideally, it would be nice if I can type the first letter from the entry I am looking for to select it so if I press "f", the first alphabetical entry that has "f" should show up.  If I press "fr" then the first alphabetical item that starts with "fr" would be displayed, etc. The same applies for numbers if they are listed.
