Awesome add-on. Changed the way I look at the control panel, no longer have to worry about obscenely long dropdowns. plus… adding values on the fly!? With 1.4 hypothetically you can make a simple accessory to go in and modify existing dropdowns to use Chosen (not tested, however).

This should be a default fieldtype in EE 3! Great Fieldtype, worth the 7 bucks. Can be a little tricky to populate, if you want entries from other channels in your MX Select Plus field, because you need to know how to write SQL-queries. Still works like a charm.
