The Web Page Search Function in Safari

Saturday, December 4, 2010, 11:46 PM – Tips and Hints

Safari has a great built-in search feature that allows you to search for words on web pages. Actually, other search engines may have the same capabilities if you know to look for it.

In Safari, select Command + F and a little search field appears in the top right corner of Safari’s main window. Type in a word and as soon as you start typing, it starts searching. You don’t have to hit return to make it work.

If it finds your search term on the page, it highlights the first place it finds it in bright yellow (and lists how many times that term appears on the page). If the word appears on the page more than once, you can press the right arrow button the left of the search field and it will jump to the next instance where the word appears. When you are finished searching, either click the Done button to the right of the search field or hit the ESC key on your keyboard.

Here is an example.
