|I used the search engine to look for "line wrap". It gave me about 950 hits, and would't easily let me narrow that down.
So I had 20 pages of results, ... not attractive.
Then I had the search engine sort the result of my query and wanted to skip to those results that started with an L ... for line. Only the site won't let me.
I can see the first 4 pages and the last for ... but if I want to find that page where the results start with an L ... I have to ask for those pages one by one until I get there. Even though those pages are sorted. Not very useful.
1) add an option that lets you go to the middle of the range offered, (in my case page 10), and then allows you to narrow down your search to pages 1-10 or pages 10-20. In that way you get a binary search which works much faster
2) add an option in which you cab type the page number from the range (1-20 in my case) so that I can do the search manually
