Unfortunately, as much as we want to, our search is not perfect yet. There are a couple of known limiations, we strive to improve constantly.
Only exact matches findable. Only matches for your exact keywords are findable right now. No synonyms, partial words or fuzzy matching possible yet.
Lag in search Currently it may happen that you experience a lag in getting back search results, when you visited a website just before. This is because we have yet to implement a more efficient way of searching and indexing at the same time. Another reasons is that some queries can need
Due to a protection mechanism by your browser, it can happen that your imports suddenly stops. This mechanism is originally intended to warn you from visiting phishing websites.
When our background process requests such a url, it blocks our code from being executed and also blocks all further requests. With a few clicks you can (temporarily) disable this measure and your imports will run through. .
NO WORRIES THOUGH. When the import process visits those websites, no viruses can be downloaded. By re-enabling the protection afterwards you are safe visiting those sites because it will show you the familiar warning

Adding notes and annotations
Searching my Memex store (or parts of it, e.g only bookmarks)
Any other use cases you could think of dear community? Integration into Premium model:
Free: Syncing every 15-30 minutes (or manually anytime) when both mobile phone and computer are online. Apart from a "skype"-like connection (WebRTC) we have to create between the devices, this way we have no server costs for your traffic. The connection is made between your devices directly.
Pocket and Safari-Style Read it later function. Basically offering users to create local copies of a website either in full html, or as cleaned 'reader-friendly' versions. As an initial integration we can work with our friends and partners of the internet archive to be able to make it possible to see annotations made on pages that have vanished.
polite suggestion: add keyboard shortcuts (or at least the ability to define your own shortcuts) for all common actions - for instance, opening the Memex menu button, adding a comment to a selected piece of text, and blacklisting a page.
i know very little about WebExtension development, but it feels like some low-hanging fruit would be the ability to save a comment using alt-enter or ctrl-enter while editing (as opposed to having to select the "save" button using the mouse cursor - which has to be moved from the center of the screen, having just been used to select a
I'd like to be able to have multiple annotations on a webpage, and be able to create permanent hyperlinks to those webpages which I can reference from other browser extensions/web apps/bookmarks/etc. Using https://worldbrain.helprace.com as an example, this would become something like: moz-extension://6a010829-06a2-446a-92a3-86d115f3a5a7/https://worldbrain.helprace.com
This would then open the indexed lightweight page and the annotation sidebar would already be open. Benefits:
- Navigating to an annotated webpage would be faster than the current workflow (navigate to webpage, mouse hover over sidebar, then click open annotation sidebar)
- Being able to navigate to a lightweight indexed version of webpage would be faster than
