There are two types of searches:
1. Intra-article search, also knows as search/Find (CTRL+F) or Find in
2. Search entire newsgroups, which usually (in my case) goes by the name
Feature (2) is probably what you are after. I find it to be rather poor as
well, so it could certainly benefit from some further work. It can only
search within one group at a time if I recall correctly. Also, it only
narrows down the number of posts displayed based on which ones contain the
string sought. It does now, however, flag in any way the position of the
matches or sort anything by relevance.
Hope it helps,
