Better frontend search

For years and years (frontend) search has been a complete disaster. There are several plugins that have tried to improve the search functionality, some with better results than others, but should something as fundamental as search be done with a plugin? I think not.

Improving front-end search is a big topic. So I wanted to bring attention to Greg’s suggestions that should be reviewed and implemented if feasible.

This is better done as a plugin. The search requirement vary and a filter would be good but the use cases are too varied to include this in core.
