Dropdown selects in HTML are some of the most natively un-user-friendly items. Styling them is a pain and at their base functionality they are not very useful unless you have a limited amount of items with a limited amount of needs.
It’s as easy as that. Now let’s take it to the next level, what if you wanted to be able to change the functionality of the dropdown to allow for multiple selections? Search for “Red” below, then hit enter, search for “Blue”, then hit enter. Now you can remove them just as easily from your selection by just hitting the X or backspace twice.
<select class="chosen" multiple style="width: 250px;">
