Re: submitting forms over get
Have a look at their code, they use a piece of JS:
What JS does is it constructs an URL out of "a9.com" and the
search box's text, then redirects the browser there. So
they're not using GET or POST, it's a roll-your-own way.
Of course, if JS fails, the "classic" url constructed via
GET (e.g. a9.com/?searchBox=test) must still be supported by
their server-side script.
Don't see what you gain by it and why you'd want to go to
the extra trouble of implementing it.
