I'd download a thread to text, delete all responses older than a year (or whatever), and then use "FIND" to jump around to when certain products were mentioned.
Getting comments/opinions on the XPA-3 in the huge Emotiva thread, or the Denon 2313 in the long Denon XX13 Model thread would be a breeze... and it's way faster than search.
One more vote for getting this functionality back.
Using the "New Page Filtering" feature of my browser extensions is an easier way to filter posts. When a posts page is loaded or reloaded the specified New Page filter is applied to the page automatically. Posts on the page that do not contain the specified string are not displayed. Once the string is specified, the filtering will be applied each time you navigate to a new forum post page.
This feature is available for Chrome, Firefox, Firefox for Android, and Opera. No Browser Helper Object has been created for the IE version of the extension, so the filter must be respecified each time a page is loaded or reloaded.
