HP has 20, Logitech Creators has 17 and TP-Link has 17. When I make a search and display the facet Brand, the order of the list is HP, then Logitech Creators or TP-Link. Because Logitech Creators and TP-Link have the same count.
What I want to understand is how does typesense decide which brand should come first in the list, in case they have the same count. And if there is a way to change that order.
