    any tool that helps a person get desired information is a step in the right direction, well done.

    i'd like it more if it didn't require javascript, but i'm usually surfing anonymously

    Thumbs up Re: Announcing search.opensuse.org

    Yes. Mostly better than the internal search.
    And I have not to write all the time "site:forums.opensuse.org Keyword1 Keword2 ...." like "" in the default Google search.
    Maybe a link to openSUSE Forums Search with Google Custom Search | search.opensuse.org/forums/ could be added in the menu of the forums beneath the link to Advanced Search - openSUSE Forums | forums.opensuse.org/search.php ?

    Only that I do not know if how to enter a search in a URL like I am able to do with the default Google Search like
    site:forums.opensuse.org 14e4:432b - Google-Search

    Did some testing, to me it looks much more powerful. Thanks to those who made this.

    Nice. I used to be able to find reasonably popular packages with openSUSE package search linked in the download page standard search, but for a few months now I hardly get any hits.
    Today I tried to find cups-pdf but no hits. I had to google to find the Printing repo. Not sure what had happened.

    Yep, an essentially blank page is not much use!

    If websites ask me to enable javascript, I ask them for a financial
    indemnity in case of any hack. Since they usually claim there is no
    risk, there shouldn't be a problem providing me with the indemnity

    A very good idea!
