Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Inspired by this tweet:

As the new, and awesome, already aggregates the hot questions from across the system. I was wondering if it would be possible to include a global search function also.

Why is this tagged as "status-completed?" – Anderson Green Oct 8 '12 at 1:59
@AndersonGreen because they added such a search to as David says in the accepted answer. – Shadow Wizard Dec 23 '15 at 8:20

It's unlikely we would tackle this for a while.

In the meantime a Google search, or a custom Google search, should do the trick.

How do I Google the whole trilogy of StackOverflow sites?

Note that this obviously also uses Google's search syntax, which no longer supports the plus-operator. Instead, quote search terms to force including them, like multi user "vpn" "windows". (This does not seem to be a 100% replacement, but the plus-operator certainly doesn't do the trick.) – Arjan Mar 30 '12 at 13:27
Would be nice if a search term would at least lead me to the most appropriate stack. Eg. for a question on 'SCADA' what stack(s) are appropriate? (if any). – jippie Jul 25 '12 at 17:17
