    Make OR searches possible in the query.

    FlickerSoul · 5 · Last reply by JonB451

    Please improve searching function. Typing a few keywords in the searching bar, I cannot get any results. However, if I type words individually, it will show results, but in a massive range, which is very annoying!

    please improve this!

    Narrow auto-completion on already applied filters

    gwe-1510 · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    The suggestions in the auto-complete box for tags/domains (or later maybe in the tag cloud) should be restricted by filters already applied - e.g. when filtering the domain "", the tag " computer science " is filtered out because there is no entry that meets booth of theese criteria. This is common in most tag/bookmark tools like tagpacker / diigo /

  • Super fast searching is now live to all users > Import speed 15x faster

    Oliver Sauter · 0 · Posted

    We are happy to announce our freakin fast new search. In the past weeks we have been working hard to get a faster and more scalable search into Memex. And we did it.

    Before: Downloading 20k websites took around 25h and a single text heavy website sometimes took minutes to index. 

    After: On a medium powered computer with a proper internet connection, importing 20k websites now takes less than 90 minutes. And even with this many documents, a 10k words document takes 500ms to index. 

    Say what?

    Yes. Swoosh so fast!

    What you need to do get the new search:

    Nothing. Just

  • Prevent your imports from stopping midway

    Oliver Sauter · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    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

    Sync between multiple computers / browsers

    Mikula Beutl · 5 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    I definitely need sync with multiple devices (e.g. laptop & computer).  It is important for me to have my history, annotations and bookmarks WITH TAGS synchronized...

    Ideally I can use different server providers like dropbox, drive, or my own private server endpoint...

    can recall an exact image of each page view

    Lif · 2 · Last reply by Lif

    Can recall an exact image of each page like view by user :

    - by one of severals screen shot if animated (for fidelity)

    - the source code of the page (for reuse if possible...)

    Of an option, with possibility to choose specific content (folder, just bookmarks, specific date..) to efficient storage.

    french : Pouvoir revoir tout contenu fidélement tel qu'on l'a vu au moment de son visionnage (par une capture d'écran + le code source de la page) avec la possibilité de limiter cet enregistrement complet à une partie du contenu indexé (signets uniquement, une certaine période, dossiers spécifiques...)

    increase speed searching or preload entire search

    Lif · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    for scrolling instantly once search is done.

    I am always surprised to see the slowness of searches on its own computer so on a small amount of data compared a huge volume with an instant response on a web search engine. I would be curious to know the technical raion.

    Increased user control over which bookmarks and history are included.

    JonB451 · 1 · Last reply by JonB451

    Each of a user's bookmarks, bookmark folders or pages visited in history could have a check box to toggle it in or out of current search. Or rather than a check box this could be a case of managing two lists: included and excluded. 

    Different profiles could even be allowed (eg, search for <Paris> in 'budget' configuration or 'luxury' configuration) but that is beyond what i am voting for in this initial proposition.

    Bookmark with description and tag

    Vanhise · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    A bookmark should take up basic text from the page automatically, similar to what google bookmarks does. For example, when visiting a github repository, the description and tags are already available

  • Known Limitations of Searching

    Oliver Sauter · 0 · Posted

    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

    a tiny little timeline marker in the results for how often and when those results were originally viewed?

    Another cue to finding the right result, would be recall of the timeframe of the original experience. yes?
