Published on 2023-03-15

This new release brings a long awaited feature – Bookmarks. Now you can save your favorite search queries by clicking on the star icon in the search string.

Search by favicon feature is significantly improved. Now can search not only exact matches, but also nearest matches. We use perceptual hash for this. Perceptual hash algorithms are opposite to standard cryptographic hashes — they are optimized to change as little as possible for similar inputs. So you can find answers with favicons that look pretty close to a given input, but use a different color, for example.
