Time for a Better Search Engine?

Guest Author

The old search engine on netbeans.org was... how to say it nicely... quite useless. So why not to use Google search instead?

    Wasn't everybody doing that already anyway, just by searching for stuff on the netbeans.org site on google.com? Always worked better than using the search link on nb.org :)

    And non-US characters don't work. :(

    Roumen, while this is ok (and as Rich said, many did it already anyway), I believe it is much more interesting to have a working search on mailing list archive content, which now is..."quite useless" (try a search in body for "Jalopy"). Many useful tips/hints are vehiculated by the users on the mailing lists, rather than being present on (static) html pages on netbeans.org (I could accept that, given the rate of change in NB itself - what I not willing to accept is the lack of decent search on user-contributed content in the mailing list; after all, that would help the community)

    I have to agree with that... do you know this search?
