On Search box,

I could search following (questions tagged bug, and google-chrome, and "browser" in post)

[bug] [google-chrome] "browser"

but following does not work (intended to search same as above but not tagged with google-chrome)

[bug] -[google-chrome] "browser"

Jeff mentioned something about - on this post, but that does not work.

Or Am I missing something?

Probably related to this. Jeff really needs to fix this stuff up properly, it's getting quite annoying. :( –  Jon Seigel May 26 '10 at 12:35

As a workaround you could (at least temporarily) add [google-chrome] to your list of ignored tags and then just search on

[bug] "browser"

Not perfect since the questions with [google-chrome] will still show up, but at least they won't stand out and it's easier to filter over them visually.

If I set "Hide Ignored Tags", it won't show up, but its far from workaround, because several actions involved. But +1 because it still work. But I wish built-in support from search box. –  YOU May 26 '10 at 14:49
