We're happy to announce some major improvements on the torrent search engine.
Search terms are now parsed before being further processed, omitting stopwords. Search results are sorted according to relevance by default (i.e. the number of occurrences of the words in the search term, among other things that weigh in). Compared to the old engine, you'll mostly end up with more results, the most relevant ones ending up on top of the list far more often..
If you check "Exact phrase", your term is not treated in such a smart way. There's no parsing (other than security-related), and the sorting is much less sophisticated. For the most part, regular searches will fit the bill much better.
Terms consisting of 3 characters and less are treated the same as "exact phrases", as of now.
