Using Google to search theFretBoard

If,like me, you browse here using the mobile site you'll know the pain of not having a search function so I've been looking for an easier way of searching the site. Anyone familiar with Google search tricks knows about using "site:www.thefretboard.co.uk" and a search term which let's you search within that specific site, OK if you're a bit of a geek and can be bothered typing that in every time but it gets a bit tiresome after a while.
This is specifically for Android and Firefox for Android, sorry Appleists.

Firefox mobile let's you add extensions and this one here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/android/addon/site-searcher/?src=search
puts an option in the drop down menu which says "search site" all this does is enter the "site:" part and the website address you're currently on so you can just enter whatever it is you're searching for. Results are dependent on Google results so refining a search is a bit limited but it's better than nothing.
Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow.....

    Android user here too (why I ever thought putting my computer in the living room on the new big telly was a good idea I don't know)

    I simply scroll down and switch to desktop version to search, simple, plus Firefox and my phone argue a lot.

  • Both ways are a bit clunky but work. I just noticed if you use my method then at the bottom of the Google results click "view Google in classic" you can order results in past week, month etc.
