Why did I make Find In Page? (and for whom?)
Page search is one of the most important productivity tools for doing research on the Web. For example, it significantly reduces the amount of time required to review search engine results - instead of scanning and reading each page for relevance, you can use Find In Page to look for relevant keywords, saving time and frustration. Ability to search for text in long Web pages and text files online is simply awesome. I cannot do without it, so I created Find In Page because I got tired of waiting for this feature to be added to Safari on the iPhone, and none of the many variations on the same Find In Page bookmarklet really did it for me (see this post as to why).
