Most browsers have a "search" or "find" function (accessible through CtrlF) which allows us to search the webpage for text.

Does iPhone's Safari browser have this functionality?

I don't have an iPhone anymore, but my memory tells me this:

iPhone

Search using the standard search bar.

  • The web search suggestions are at the top.
  • The website search results of the currently viewed website are at the bottom.

iPad

Search using the standard search bar.

  • The web search suggestions are at the top.
  • To search the website use the entry box which pops up right above the keyboard.

All of this may change with iOS 6 and Mountain Lion. The WWDC2012 announced that Safari for OSX will integrate a Chrome like omnisearch bar . Most likely we'll see something similar for iOS as well - at least i hope so :).

  • What do you mean by the "standard search bar"? I can only see the "address bar" and the "google search bar".. – Pacerier Jul 2 '12 at 13:43

    @Pacerier Sorry that I wasn't clear enough. I mean what you refer to as the "google searchbar" - which actually is not the real name as you can change it to Bing or Yahoo for example. – gentmatt Jul 2 '12 at 13:47
  • Cool its working =) Wow, talk about bad usability.. – Pacerier Jul 2 '12 at 13:50
