Why is such an unsophisticated, almost infantile, search engine the dominant one?
Search for a string of words and it'll return tons of results missing the most important search term. No way to say 'all terms, damnit' or specify priority.
It ignores characters. When I say 90° I damn well mean 90°, if I say 90% no you can not remove the %!
It also changes words. If I say 'machine' I usually dont mean machinery or machining or machinations or macadamias or mangosteens, I mean machine!
Is there any search engine that will actually search for what you enter? Perhaps with function modifiers, like a + for 'you damn well better include this' or a # for 'ok, you can include purported synonyms on this word'.
