The search box on the website for the AUR has helpful features that are not found in the search box for the package database.
Examples are:
* option to search by name only, exact name, maintainer
* sort order
* results per page

To see for yourself, compare to .

You can do most of it, but it may take an additional click or two:
* There's a drop-down list of maintainers
* You can sort all the columns apart from 'Version' and 'Description'
* Search by exact name is already covered by  FS#26383  and to lesser extent by  FS#30773 

In the meantime, you can create a shell function that will use positional parameters to filter by repo, maintainer etc. or use expac to extract and format this info.
