When you search for apps, it would be nice if the number of found results was displayed somewhere in the UI. I don't know why, but seeing this always makes me feel comfortable after a search, and not seeing it makes me feel unmoored, especially if there are more results than fit on the page. Are there 10? 100? 1000? Knowing the number makes me feel more in informed and in control.
This is controversial. For applications it's not a problem, for KNS results we're limiting the search at some point, so it wouldn't be accurate to say there's 500 wallpapers.
Shouldn't the scroll bar be for that anyway?
How about just "500+ search results" for huge lists? Heck, that's what Bugzilla does here!

Provide a count of elements on the ApplicationsListPage title
Something like "Education - 3523 results"
In case all applications have not been fetched yet, we only show the
most relevant digit and the magnitude "Education - 3000+ results".
