Every time I try to find something in SO, it is a waste of time, the results does not have relevance and often the question I'm looking for does not even show up in the results.
I immediately switch to Google and the top result is often what I was looking for (or in the top 5 results)
Stop fighting with search, embrace the leader.
- Allow a preference that always use Google
- Two panes search, one with SO internal search and the other with Google Search
- Phase out internal search and use it only for Related Questions (that will free some resources involved with search)
Note: I know I can always use Google with site:SO, but I think the problem is for all the users.
