I often hear complaints about how bad the MySQL manual’s native search functions are. Wes recently posted an entry on using firefox key word searching to solve the problem. This is such a great post I have decided to share it with all of you. I also want to add that the MySQL’s questionable site search can be avoided all together by using yahoo’s site search. To use this search URL goto Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks. Navigate to your Wes style bookmark. Change the Location to this url:
Now your keyword search will use yahoo to return more relevant pages only in english. If you want to use a different language change lang_en in the url to the language you prefer. Thanks Wes!
