Type ahead find is in the nightly builds
Yes, that's right all you emacs users and cool feature addicts. No more playing around with prefs.js or downloading XPI's to get this feature to work.
What is it? Just start typing on a web page to highlight the matching text. This wil l find any matches in hyperlinks.
If you want to search just the text, type the "/" character before typing and it will search non-links.
It's a pretty cool feature for quickly picking out the text you are looking for on a page and is the first major step forward in browser "Find Dialog" technology since, ummm, Netscape 1 maybe?
Anyhow, download a nightly build and check it out.
I cannot get this to work! I'm using the latest nightly build (1.2a) on Red Hat 7.3. Any ideas?
One more note: I installed using the RH RPMs.
How do you go about finding the next link? It finds the first one fine, but what about the second and third occurance of a word? Hitting the / again would be nice...
Use Ctrl-g to find the next occurance.
Ctrl-G to find next
Ctrl-Shift-G to find previous
or you can use
F3 to find next
Shift-F3 to find previous
