New! Incredibly improved search

Posted by Ben Williams on Feb 24, 2014 10:43:28 AM

Starting today, we're giving you more options than ever to search through Firecracker's content. Some highlights:

  • The quality of search results has improved tremendously. We've swapped out the search engine powering the site and you get better results much more quickly.
  • You can use quotes to search for exact phrases
  • Search for parts of words using "*"
  • Prevent words from appearing in the results by prefixing with a dash ("-")
  • Require words to appear in the results with a plus sign ("+")

To top it all off, we've given the search interface a visual refresh.
