For real geeks, you can type in a whole search from the URL box in your browser
E.g., this is a search:
Go to that URL and the search page comes up, in the usual way, with the search already performed, and then you can click on the search links in the sidebar to filter the search in the usual way.
I'm not sure how useful this is, but who knows? Maybe it will save somebody a bit of time, and if you do the same search over and over again, you can bookmark it.
