Tagged for future but I have a question.

How does it affect server load ?
I mean, searching is one of the things that consume a lot of server resources in a big board, how better is this one at this point compared to vB standard ?

mad@Max 10 Feb 2010 15:15

Loads will be much less, because this search generates only one resultant query, in contrast to standard search that each time downloading an entire page.
