Hi, i'm new here so pleez go easy on me if i didn't find the buried thread-s discussiong this.

So my question is simple : is there any particular reason the search forms use the POST method and not GET ?

Concretely, it would allow for bookmarking search results with page number and query variables, which comes in quite handy when one wants to go through all the results but can't in one shot. (i'll spare you the lecture on RESTful applications and blahblahblah embarrassed ).

EDIT : well, GET is obviously used with pagination links and add the query string to the URL.

Then i suppose my question still stands... why not always use GET ?
(i promise i won't go mad if i end up shrugged at)

I tried it out and the page already supports either method. So it wouldn't hurt anything at all to update it to be GET. Which would also full the RESTful design pattern ;-)
