0.16.0 - Annotation Search & Timeline

Release date: 01.04.2019

Searching & filtering your annotations + Annotation timeline

Via the search dashboard you can now full-text search your annotations, and use the same filters you are used to in the website search (time, domain, bookmarks, tags)



  • Full-text search through annotations
  • See a chronological list of all your annotations
  • Filter with all existing filters (time, domain, tags)
  • Filter by highlight AND/OR note content
  • 'Star' annotations
  • Display # of annotations on page results

Known ways to improve this feature

Bug that heavily slows down querying of results in the dashboard (under PRIO1 investigation)
Workaround: use m+space in address bar to search, or Google/DuckDuckGo integration
Make domain filter work (bug to be fixed)
Searching Memex content in in-page sidebar (in development)
Filter by tag in sidebar by clicking on tag pill (works in dashboard)
Highlight terms in annotation search results
Show # of annotations in in-page toolbar
