Change POST to GET

The authors of the excellent search engine should consider changing the search request to a GET instead of a POST. Here are some of the reasons why:

1. Webserver logfiles will not show the keyword searched for in the referrer or request strings (valuable information is lost)

2. All (not most) major search engines use GET instead of POST for exactly the above reasons.

3. It is easier to interface other products to the search engine, if the request string contains the keyword typed.

Your consideration for this is deeply appreciated.
