Bookmark a page with tags. Search bookmarks with compound queries. Capture more data about your bookmarks, and group and wrangle them in any way you like.
2.4Multi tab search
Search multiple tabs at the same time, and view all the results in a single window. Jump quickly through your open tabs to find what you need.
2.5History as a tree
History is represented as a tree that you can traverse. Smarter than the "forwards-backwards" abstraction found in other browsers, the tree makes sure you never lose track of where you've been.
