Searching of the online documentation of Julia ineffective

Searching the documentation is frustrating. Lots of barely relevant hits. Some things will never be found.

So, I wonder if it would be possible to employ some embedded PDF viewer instead of the
web-page interface? Does anyone have experience with one of those?

use JuliaHub

PDF? Relevant hit right away:
