I have the following problem, which makes me search through Google instead of the internal StackOverflow search:
When I type a search of more than 3 words, the search is rejected and I get to choose 3 out of the 4 words.
This is ridiculous, most of the times I am looking for more than simple questions that require more than 3 words to describe.
So what I do instead is I go to Google and search there, using site:stackoverflow.com as filter.
To summarize, this is the actual question: Am I missing something and using search properly or there is another way to perform meaningful searches from within stackoverflow?
An example, (out of many I can think, and out of most of my searches too):
This is the main point of this question (I put it here instead of commenting each of the answers)
The internal search should be as flexible as possible because people searching for answers most of the time have fuzzy input.
It means that if AND does not yield results it should try OR, or try synonims, and if not that, try other things, and not require the user master in searchology to target specific results. Be like Google.
