I try to use the search to find answers. It would be nice to have an option to list threads only once even though multiple posts contain the search phrase. If I search for "cgi" skimming the thread titles is not possible with so man duplicates.

It's done for performance reasons. The content in which the searching is done, is in the several posts of which a topic consist. Selecting only a topic instead of the message in which the search query was found, logically requires the first post in a topic to be selected for the preview. Doing so, requires a too complex or too many queries. And besides that, searching for just 'cgi', which is present in too many topics, won't make your search result more usable. Try searching for a more specific term.
