The letters "ss" are very common in German to replace "ß" (older & rare variant is "sz"), so it makes sense to add this to the search function. Also I would like to find "ō" by typing "o". Maybe there are more characters like that, but that's what I recently found.

i think it should go under 'ignore diacritic marks' option

Thanks, I didn't know that option exists. I think it would be a good idea to add these standardised alternative spellings:

ß = ss
ä = ae
ö = oe
ü = ue
