    Default Favorite "Find"

    Hey, in this thread you can post which find function you like the most.
    I personally think that Safari's is awesome, after that would come Chrome then Firefox. What about you guys?

    Oh. I personally like Firefox's. Then Chrome, then IE8's.

    I don't have Safari, what's so great / different about the find function in that compared to FF?

    What Safari does that is so great that it:
    1) Has a search window at the top(like a bar) and you type in your search.
    2) Then in kind of a fading way it highlights all the results.
    Heres a really quick swoof file I made, it will take a while to load + it has very bad graphics.

    I like the find and highlight syntax when using find in notepad++ does that count?

    Yea notepad++ is absolutely great for highlighting / editing, like once I had put like 50 <br> tags in a page, and wanted the page to validate, so had to change them all to <br/>, but using notepad++'s find and replace saved me loads of time

    50 <br> tags? How about using margins & padding, buddy? lol

    I don't really have a favorite "find" functionality in a browser. As long as it gets the job done...that's all that matters (to me).

    What I have a greater issue with is searching from within the browser and bookmarklets. I've recently switched to use Inman's Shortwave. Let me tell ya, a huge life saver.
