We understand the hash is for AJAX searches, but the exclamation mark? Anyone know?
Also, the "action" attribute for their search form points to "/search," but when you conduct a search, the hash exclamation mark appears in the URL. Are they simply redirecting from "/search" to "/#!/search"?
Note: the second part of the q remains unanswered: That is, are they redirecting the user from "/search" to "/#!/search", or do they send the user to "/search" and use JS on the page to rewrite the URL? – Crashalot Jan 26 at 23:51
