Sorted search result redux
Can I have it with chips?

Ummm.. *I* could have done that. It doesn't solve the problem, it just makes it worse. The results are sorted by relevance -- so you're just making the *least* relevant result first.
Furthermore, there may be thousands of results that match the query and the page returns the first 100. All you are doing is sorting that first 100 -- that's not what everyone wants.

It sorts it on topic id, so whatever result you get _IS_ sorted "Last post first"
You are right about the first 100 thing ofcourse.
And I'm confident that *YOU* could have done that too ;)
I'm not competing with you
"It sorts it on topic id, so whatever result you get _IS_ sorted "Last post first""
True but if I do a big long search query, your script will just screw up the results. The most relevant post would have been first but now it might not.
"You are right about the first 100 thing ofcourse."
Which, of course, does make it less than useful. ;)
"And I'm confident that *YOU* could have done that too ;)

I didn't mean to imply that you were... it's just that if that was a good solution, I would have done it myself in the code.

As with the other script(s) I posted, I just made something that suited MY needs.
And maybe somebody else has a use for it too, so I make it public.
It does what it does, sort the returned search result on topicid descending, nothing less, nothing more. I never claimed differently.
You are the master of greasemonkey scripts... you can sure bang those things out fast!

Umm.. isn't that the "Maser of greasemonkey scripts"?
Annoyingly I'm running FF2 beta 2 and Greasemonkey, she no work!
