  • search for words on a web page!!

    Well my friend showed me a neat little function on Modzilla Firefox the internet browser I use. I assume they all have it but I never knew about it!!
    If you are for example reading a long text about how to tune up a tablesaw, but just want to find where they are talking about aligning the blade. Press ( Ctrl f ) and another toolbar will pop up, type align in the box. It will then search through the text and find the first time it says align, if that's not exactly what you were looking for you can press next and it will go to the next (align) in the text. Seems to be a pretty good time saver.

    Ultra cool! I just tried it using the AOL browser and it works there as well. Thanks for sharing that tip Brien.

      For IE6 or 7 click on Edit and then Find On This Page then previous or next. Does the same thing.

      Nothing is ever as straightforward as it seems.

        Or you can click on CTRL + F (for Find) to look for a word.

          I believe that is a function of you Operating program...windows or other OP.
          I have always had that function with any OP I have had and it works on any page, not just your browser.
