Isn't it wonderful the way modern websites make it impossible to search for what you want?

Isn't it wonderful the way modern websites make it impossible to search for what you want? Either the search engine is overly precise and fails to find documents containing the words you've entered, or it's overly fuzzy with no way to say "search for this phrase only and nothing else"...



I was originally searching for "quicktime" - see, I've got this crazy idea that the Quicktime plugin might actually be a reasonable way to play MPEG4 videos in Firefox on an old laptop, and this even crazier idea that a Firefox extension could replace <video> tags with a suitable <embed> tag to achieve this. This was how video playback actually worked in the HTML 4 days, after all.
