Over the past year I’ve seen History Search develop very quickly. I know Martijn and he’s very motivated to make this services the best it can possibly be.Pros:
History Search often works better than searching services themselves because all the content in History Search is relevant to me alone.Cons:
There’s not mobile app yet, but as I’ve heard a mobile responsive web search is on its way.
I’ve used History Search from the very beginning and the experience is very smooth! It’s very conveniently and easy to install and use in the web browser. It helps me a lot in my work to find back marketing related articles I’ve read in the past, which helps me to prepare work for my client. Besides that, History Search is a great productivity tool to open web documents and emails I’m working on in seconds. Thanks for building this!Pros:
This service is a must for any digital marketer. I use it to retrieve tweets, find articles back and keep track of all the different urls.Cons:
History Search has done wonders for my productivity - for example I read a lot of articles and find useful information in them but I never stay organized enough to be able to retrieve that information later on when I need it. It's really helped a lot with my organization and has made my life way easier.Pros:
Makes me WAY more efficient - I don't waste time trying to organize things in my browser or looking through the hundreds of pages I've savedCons:
I’ve been using History Search for a while, and it’s a great time saver. When Martijn first presented the idea to me I didn’t fully understand the power of the product, I thought it was regular browsing history with a near UI. In reality it’s way more like a Spotlight search for the web!Pros:
Ability to use anything I remember to retrieve anything I’ve seen online.Cons:
Google integration included, so you don't have to research Google for memories when you could check the `filesystem for the web`
It works well and for students you don't have to worry about upgrading because you already get lots of history allocation right outta the box
My best feature will be it's quick response time which has me wondering how they managed to burn through many site indexes and display results and previews almost immediately...it's mind blowing
Although searching with regular expressions would've been a very nice addition but all together, for a first release, it's perfect!
Keep up the good workPros:
From UI to performance all going well
It's unrivalled and it's not a let downCons:
I can’t imagine browsing without History Search, it’s funny how such a simple tool solves a huge problem. It has become the #1 tool for my browser.Pros:
I work a lot with Readymag, and History Search is the only way for me to keep track of the large amount of linksCons:
It’s missing the ability to easily share links, I would really like this to share work with clients.
I recommend History search!Pros:
History Search is a dream while recruiting. I simply search a applicants or customer’s name and up comes everything I need.Cons:
The extensions are amazing, but the web app could allow for more customization of the search page. I’d like to use it more like a desktop.
I really like the fact that the team worked really hard on the product until it is fully finished instead of launching a semi-final product with tons of bugs like most of the startups today.Pros:
History Search provides the best experience in retrieving the information that I've already searched for on the web. It feels very natural.Cons:
The browser extension is great but I would like to see a mobile version released as well for a complete & smooth cross-platform experience.
I’ve known Martijn for a while and he is very dedicated to make History Search the best of its kind. The product is solid, and its a good team! History Search is a great tool for anyone, who spends a lot of time in the browser. I use it all the time and its saved me a bunch of time already.Pros:
Martijn has been actively listening to the users & keep working on making History Search a solid productCons:
Can't think of any right now
History search is helpful for me as a developer, but really it's helpful for everyone. I like the fact that I can easily find articles, video tutorials, code snippets and api docs without having to search through pages of my web history.
Good job Martjin ;)Pros:
Easily find developer docs and code snippets.Cons:
I often have a problem when I read something interesting, then I need to come back to that article but can't find it. I just dowloaded the tool and tried it out checking whether it's gonna work for me. Even a free version works good.Pros:
nice tool, the search is indeed better than in the history tab, I like its simple designCons:
I had to register via email, downloading an extension alone wasn't enough.
It's free to get started and if you turn to a power user, you can easily upgrade for really affordable prices. There is also a big student discount, so kudos to Covergate for understanding student needs :)Pros:
It's a must-have tool if you spend a lot of time surfing. It's easy to get started and helps you find exactly what you're looking for!Cons:
It can occasionally slow down browser loading speed.
