Transform drupal search result page to infinite scroller

If you want to transform pager of any page to infinite scroller you can do it using infinite scroll javascript.
To set it on any page, you will need a couple of steps:
I have transformed the search result page to infinite scroller.
For detail instructions you can follow this guide on
1) Download (jquery.imagesloaded.min.js) place it in your theme folder YOURTHEME/js
This will make sure all images are loaded before activate the infinite scroll.
2) Download (jquery.infinitescroll.min.js) place it in your theme folder YOURTHEME/js
In order to make it work with Drupal search modify it as follow: Search match(/^(.*?page=)2(\/.*|$)/ replace it by match(/^(.*?page=)2(&.*|$)
3) Create a new js (ex:infinitescroll.js) with the content of the jQuery code given below & place it in your theme folder YOURTHEME/js
  Note that you will probably have to change the img path
4) modify and add
scripts[] = js/jquery.imagesloaded.min.js
scripts[] = js/jquery.infinitescroll.min.js
scripts[] = js/infinitescroll.js
5) flush the cache
6) cross finger & try .... it should work if not ... it's time to play and debug with firebug ...
Put this in your infinitescroll.js file.
   Drupal.behaviors.viewsInfiniteScroll = {
   attach: function (context, settings) {
    if (this.processed) return;
    if ($('.search-results').length==0) return;
       var $container = $('.search-results');
       $container.imagesLoaded( function(){
           navSelector  : 'ul.pager',    // selector for the paged navigation
           nextSelector : '.pager-next a',  // selector for the NEXT link (to page 2)
           itemSelector : '.search-results',     // selector for all items you'll retrieve
           animate      : true,
           msgText  : Drupal.t("Loading new results..."),
           img: '/sites/default/themes/bartik/images/ajax-loader.gif',
           donetext:Drupal.t('No more results to load.'),
        //YOUR CALLBACK STUFF .. To re-attach behaviour if needed

I think there is also infinite scroll module on but it doesn't provide the scroller on the search result page. Module provides scroller on the tables only...

But for search result we surely can follow your way
