I think a better description of this program would be helpful. I am not going to download it when I don't even understand what it will do.
Your screenshot also tells me nothing. Does this just generate random text? Does it generate actual words. Why would it need a search box?
More info please. You website is also not helpful at all in describing this in more detail.

Phenomenal Application although try threading the code that makes the monkey type so the interface doesn't lock up.

Also, would love to see an infinite typing mode that attempts to reconstruct Hamlet from random characters.

Actually, they're using this program to write Vista. Weren't you wondering why it keeps getting delayed?

Choose "yes" or "no" for spaces. Select the monkey type in the Popup menu, and, if necessary, enter a numerical value for x. Then click on the "Monkey Types" button, and, perhaps after some noticeable time, you will see the characters typed by the monkey. The application itself can now find the English words using the words from Webster's 2nd International dictionary.
