Feedback on smart search, web panels and notes
I am exploring some of the Vivaldi new features (at least those that are new to me, finding out about them right now).
1. Power search: I am reading that Vivaldi can retrieve pretty much everything from my history, but take this page for example: http://www.zeit.de/2017/25/alexej-nawalni-russland-opposition-wladimir-putin
I cannot retrieve it if I type in "Zeit Putin", which is, let's say, all I remember about that page I want to retrieve. Even tried with F2, doesn't retrieve it.
2. Notes: I really don't get why I should use my browser for note-taking. The official page about Notes in Vivaldi (https://help.vivaldi.com/article/notes/) has so little information, many users won't really understand what it's all about. Please tell us how are notes supposed to be used?! Some examples in context? I would find them useful if I could create notes about a web page that I am visiting, and then when visiting that page again, the notes associate to that page would be retrieved automatically, for example an article written in a foreign language, and the notes may contain words that I've translated previously, or some useful quotations/relevant sentences from that article. And I would like to be able to export these notes, as well, inclusive of the source URL (similarly to what Diigo does).
- Kudos for Web panels and page tiling, fantastic feature that makes Vivaldi shine compared to all other browsers! I can now keep two pages opened at once, and how easily! I can also read a page from a foreign language and keep google translate, or whatever dictionary, open on the side. Really useful: Thank you guys.

I use them for inserting boiler-plate text, e.g. replies to FAQs, personal info, etc. Right-click in any text area and select Insert Note.
e.g. See the Modding Forum
