Filter search results using regular expressions.
The API itself is pretty good. The only thing that bugs me is that I could only manage to get 8 results on which to apply my regular expression. Ideally, I would have liked to do something like this:
- Get query + filter string from user
- Submit query to Google using AJAX
- As the results come in, filter them using the filter string in step 1
- Present to user as results pass filter
So for the above page to be even slightly useful, I would have to be able to go through at least 100 relevant results.
Of course I understand that Google has limited the search for business reasons. But this is a very good way to totally make the feature useless, in my opinion.
Oh well, at least I learned something today.
