    They brought the much better search engine back due to the upgraded servers.

    This other search engine is worst than the Google one.

    if you notice on this gbatemp search it doesn't always find what your looking for for example search how to get how to get homebrew channel you get no results.
    i'm sure there are other searches that don't give results or give results your not looking for.

    homebrew channel would suffice.

    So you gave an example which you said didn't yield results, yet it does actually yield results and didn't work for you the first time due to an error on your part?

    my bad but a result should still show no matter what kind of search you use as long as the Website has info.
    if you think about it a lot searches that don't show results are pretty straight forward and should come up with something.

    If you search words least than three characters, don't you think you would get A TON of results that are not needed?
