This happens for me with ancient Lynx (ummm, looks like it's
2.8.4dev.20); and with old Netscape (4.7.x) and (if I remember right
from browsing at home) Opera 7.10 for Windows.  If you use commas
instead of spaces ("cpu,2.8ghz" rather than "cpu 2.8ghz"), it searches

I'm pretty sure the fault is mostly in pricewatch's search engine.  Its
parsing of the form submission results is weak.
