I have run comparisons of search results for the terms "garg" (expecting "Gargron") and "electro" (expecting "electroCutie") between the status-quo PostgreSQL-backed account search and the improved account search I have been working on:

@Gargron Looks good! FWIW Pinafore uses a pretty simple heuristic: if an account is in the local IndexedDB database, then it goes to the top of the list of autosuggestions. This tends to favor accounts you follow, accounts in your timeline, etc.

@Gargron Significantly better results for a few real searches I just tried!

@Gargron Would you consider putting a minimum character limit rather than a maximum character limit per toot? Would promote thinking
