>>> No longer required in IPS 4.0.12 <<<
The search system currently sorts by "Relevancy" by default which doesn't return the results most users expect. So users are generally in the situation where every search is followed by another click to sort by "Date".
This simple plugin just sets the default search to return results in date order.
Edit: I've asked for this to be removed soon as it's actually duplicating an older plugin that I'd not seen. Long live the "search" system
