Please add "Common Words Only" global setting option ...

The older version of Jisho provided the ability to enable the global setting "common words only"

Please add "Common Words Only" as a global setting to the New Jisho ...

I deliberately did not add a global common words filter because I would like to replace "common words" with something more up to date. The current "common words" filter is based on frequency of words in a variety of newspaper sources. I would like to find a larger body of text that is more current and extract frequency data from that and possibly show how different words are common in different types of text, as opposed to a one-size-doesnt-fit-all "common words".

I thought adding #common in the search will yield the words/expressions that contain the 'common' tag

@d3fyre yes while that will work, I think what people are asking for is a checkbox similar to the one on Classic Jisho, which would persist the option between searches.
