This is getting out of hand and quite annoying, especially for technical queries. Maybe Google can indulge us geeks with options or on a different Google site? Surely the tech folks at Google can't be happy with this? Maybe they have a more powerful internal search for themselves.Cmon, share!

Not counting on it though, after seeing what happened to code.google.com. If Bing or anyone else having decent web converage implements a proper search, I'll be all over it.

I'm not sure of your definition of "proper search", but bing seems to have a reasonably flexible search syntax (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff795667.aspx).

I'm personally going to give it and DDG a try over the next couple weeks, just in case either is currently significantly better for tech related searches.

So far Duck Duck Go is looking like a potential win.

I would be happy with a checkbox(sticky or not) or a search hint link that says "Include only pages that contain all search keywords".
