New Feature: Advanced Search

Until now, when you ran a search on the My Bookmarks page, the default and only search mode was "Exact phrase".
From now you can select one of the following 3 search modes:
  • Exact phrase
  • All of the words
  • Any of the words
The default search mode still remains "Exact phrase". To run a search with any of the search modes on the My Bookmarks page, click on the blue down arrow next to the search field then select the desired search mode.

Let's suppose you enter the following text in the search field: big red apple
You will get the below search results with the different search modes:

Exact phrase: bookmarks containing exact phrases ("big red apple")

All of the words: bookmarks containing all words in any position ("big" and "red" and "apple")

Any of the words: bookmarks containing any of the words ("big" or "red" or "apple")

When you run a search, the URL, the title, the tags and the notes of the bookmarks are all searched.

When you run a quick search from the Dashboard, the "Exact phrase" search mode is used.

The new search modes are available on the mobile web UI, too:
