When the search gives back a lot of results, that are way too much to display on one page, they are shown beginning by the first ones in alphabetical order. For displaying the next few, I must click on the button "next results". This processus is very ineffective, slow and annoying. What would be better, is to be able to choose the number of results displayed on one page (as in the search at directory.fsf.org, but with the ability to start looking at everywhere in the course of the results list rather than having to click your way through.
For example: The search result list consists of 1230 items, and I define the length of one page as 50 items. Then for every 50 items, there could be a very tiny button, and if I would want to look somewhere at 2/3 of the entries, I would select the 16th (=2/3 of 25). This would be a solution a bit more elaborate than the one of google's search results.
