Yes a characteristic of this technique is that a letter typed appears for 
the milliseconds between the keydown and the keyup event. Even on Windows.

You can regard this as a serious security breach, or as an improvement on 
usability (to ensure someone is typing what they think they are typing).

But it is very simple and I like how it looks/behaves.
