It would be possible to do this but currently the search engine used is an
external one and not very efficient, I did propose we change to Daniel
Naber's Perlfect Search Engine that is used on a few of the subdomains
already including Usability but I didn't get much feedback.

I was referring to the breadcrumb menu here, a separate mail addressed the
Location dropdown and Christoph has subsequently made that optional.
