    9 This ''plugin'' for [http://slimdevices.com/pi_features.html SqueezeCenter] and !SlimServer from [http://slimdevices.com Slim Devices] attempts to remove both of these annoyances - allowing you to search both more quickly and more accurately. As a quick comparison, searching for ''"SQUEEZE"'' with the standard search takes around 20 button-pushes, but with this plugin it takes only seven. __That's 65% fewer buttons-pushes__!
