  • It would be really great if Opera added a Notes feature to the browser. There are plenty of extensions out there, but I much prefer taking notes via the browser than trusting content to extensions.

    It looks like there used to be a feature like this on an older version of Opera, which makes me hope there will be a return to that functionality again. Here are a few features I'd love to see:

    • Insert via hotkeys;
    • Search from a context menu that can be summoned on a page;
    • Categorize and colorize for sorting and navigation purposes;
    • Hashtags;
    • Import/export;
    • Associate URLs with notes that will automatically open;
    • Add the option to have a note be inserted into a particular field automatically if the user captures the note in that field.
  • You can do a search for something highlighted on a page with the context menu. Just choose the search engine you want from "Search With". That does not work well with StartPage or Qwant, possibly because they use a different way to load search terms.

  • There is V7 Notes extension which is pretty good, but has it's mishaps. Built in would be better.
