Everytime I search filetrip I see many irrelevant links and I am wondering if I am doing something wrong! Cause it seems like everytime I use the website it is hard to find what im lookingf for!

i'm not sure its issues so much as the fact that there are just so many files on filetrip. people expect that 1 file to be found exactly and they often don't realize the amount of coding it would take to make that happen. search engines can be confusing to code because you have to try to take into account everything anyone will throw at it.

i find that i'm often going through query results to find the exact file i want, but digging a few pages in doesn't really bother me all that much. =P

Any time I'm dealing with a site that has a crap search engine, I just use Google in in a unique (but common sense) way. For example, type "filetrip phidias" in Google's search field.* Works like a charm -- I've used it several times on Filetrip.

3rd result a hit, bam!

It's probably possible.
I've noticed chrome can already search filetrip (enter filetrip.net as URL and press TAB)
As long as the site has a search bar (probably in some way or another powered by Google) on the front page, Chrome will allow to search the site immediately by merely pressing tab (which is incredibly useful combined with the other feature that automatically types in the URL for you), I think.

Actually it's not needed to have a search thingy on the front page. Chrome will add the search when you used it on the site it seems (it basically remembers the search engine).
You can add them manually in options > basics > manage button (After "Default search").

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
