CTRL+F in Google Chrome Is Awesome

Although I find myself using find function quite often, I haven’t noticed this Google Chrome feature before:

It shows in the scroll bar where the word you’re searching for is located.

    This is a great feature but actually this feature is part of Maxthon 3 for a long time.

      This really great feature has been part of Chrome search from the beginning.

      Maxthon 3 has it because it is a copy of Chrome code.

    Using it for a long time. Eagerly waiting for case-sensitive search in Chrome.

    I *think* Camino on the Mac does the same thing.

    Actually in Opera you just need to press ‘.’ – dot and start typing, It’s much faster than search for Ctrl+F :)

    I’m removing you from my feed reader thanks to this post. A single sentence about a feature that has been around for years? That falls way below my minimum standard for feeds. This trash isn’t worth the 10 seconds of my time it takes to skim.
