Google should do abbreviations

Even though I don’t like the abbr element, I wish that while it is prevalent Google would let people search for them with something like abbr:HTML.

    Use ‘define:HTML’.

    While define: is great, it appears not to search in the title of abbreviations, which means that for the more common ones it’ll find them, but for some obscure ones it doesn’t find them, and there’s also a lot of stuff in the results that isn’t strictly an expansion of the abbreviation.

    Still, it’s not a real problem or anything that would make a huge difference in my life, just something that’d be nice (since I like looking at google more than sites like acronymfinder.com with all their ads).
