I typed "NW.js" in the Forum Search and got this:

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: nw js.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

Thats probably taken as 2 words.
Try nwjs, node-webkit, or variations of that.
There's always google

A lot of searches parse the input using regex for instance, in order to strip out unwanted characters (originally used to stop SQL injection I reckon) so in your example that would leave a word only 2 characters in length.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

You can use google instead to search the forum/scirra site like so:
https://www.google.com/#q=nw.js+site:ht ... scirra.com

Edit:
Opps, I need to read better. Newt already posted that.

I wasn't posting because of the search parsing out.. I was more bringing attention to how you can't search on the new name "NW.js" opposed to node-webkit which seems a bit of a problem! (seeing how many questions and problems ppls been having)

The Google workaround seems easy enough, but kind of cludgy... I think the search should at least take quotes into effect and search on the whole string. Not sure how much Ashely or Tom have control over that but just thought I'd bring it up.
