I would think that if I set the “Operators” bitmask to indicate that a search engine doesn’t support “AND”, that would tell DA to compensate by issuing one search per search term and then combining the results internally. For example, if I type the following query in a plugin that has AND support disabled in the search engine:
I would expect DA to issue a query for “browser” and a second query for “firefox” and then combine them internally.
This isn’t what is currently done. Instead, DA just ignores what operators aren’t supported by the search engine. In other words, turning an operator off in the search engine appears to turn it off in DA too.
Can DA be made to operate more like my expectations?
