Bless you, Gabriel. After a day of searching for a fast effective search plug-in, I found this. For websites that have a lot of products that don't have the mega hosting that big companies do, this search is the best. All the rest are great if your hosting is top dollar. Otherwise, the search gets bogged down to a snail's pace. This plug-in offers the fastest way for your customers to get to the product or section they want. Used with effective use of product categories or tags, the speed of this plug-in beats all the competition. I'm only giving this a 4 star because I would like to see more work done on it. To hell with it, Today he gets five-stars!!!
