Boulter Quick Search by Jeff Boulter
- This tool was created to compensate for the cumbersome search on geocaching.com. A long time ago I requested that a multi-functional search box be put at the top of every page. I got annoyed that to search you have to wait for a huge page to load, then scroll down to the keyword search, which is what I want most of the time. It searches heaps of sites and on lots of terms.
