The Bing and Twitter searches currently return the whole search tile. Including the search tabs on the left. This should be refactored so that the search engines only return a <div> or maybe <iframe> that contains the results. The app should manage the container and the tab selection. The app can then also show a spinner while the search results are being loaded.
This refactoring has taken place now (currently in the backbone-js branch), so an HTML fragment is returned (in a JSON envelope). I can't yet confirm the bing/twitter search provider tabs are switching correctly, as twitter searches have temporarily stopped working. but that /should/ be the case.

It is also very easy to change the search API to return real JSON results instead of HTML. Is that something you guys would prefer?
