A Tag Action will be performed automatically if a URL, tagged with this tag, is opened. As part of this action, you can remove the tag from this URL and add new tags to it. This could be very useful for a #Readlater tag. Add this tag to a URL if you want to read it later. Then, when it is opened, you can remove it or, for example, move the URL to a #Done tag.

Yes, you can search your history, collections and tags right from the terminal, without opening the macOS app. Navigate to Surfed.app/Contents/MacOS/surfed-cli.app/Contents/MacOS and run ./surfed-cli to get a help with all parameters.
