Suggestion - Searching on Lotus Talk via Google

I have read the posts around some of the frustrations of the search within Lotus Talk. It was also suggested to use the 'site:' parameter in Google to perform a search. Being a new owner of a 2005 Lotus Elise 111R, I am on the site a lot. Oil types, filters, paint chips, etc.....

So I have taken the Google search just a small step further with this simple little trick:

1) Perform your first search on Google using site: parameter and base search words elise
2) Bookmark the page of results to your bookmarks bar (I use Chrome on my desktop and phone)
3) When you want to search again just click on the bookmark
4) Add any other relevant search terms to what is now in the search bar elise paint chips
5) Hit enter

And there you have it. It just saves you the time of typing in the '' every time.

Obviously you're been preaching this forever. To say the OP was preaching to the choir (you) is an understatement.
