    Greetings devs,

    Maybe this already exists, but I qwas wondering if a patch/app could be created to allow for a "Find on this page" type feature in the web browser ala Ctrl-F.

    Comments? Suggestions?

    I would also like to know.

    I was excited to find any that worked. Now just need to add them as a bookmark some how.

    would be cool, but it's been looked at. http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...-booklets.html so it's not as easy as other patches I guess

    I'm not sure if it's the same thing as just type, but we are looking forward to "just type" in the upcoming update in the next month or so.(hopefully)

    No, not the same thing. What I'm referring to is the equivalent of a CTRL - F function so I can find a given line of text on a web page. I jsut can't beleive this functionality isn't there. It's silly. Silly I tell you!

    well, it's not "just type". Basicall what's wanted is "just find," so added to the just type within the browser, which all ready searches history, and gives the option to search google and wikipedia.

    this is coming natively to the next ios version...
    any mention of this coming in webos 2.0?

    I guess I just can't imagine why this was not included from the start. Eh well.

    This is a huge shortcoming. Even my blackberry's stock browser had this.

    It seems like it's possible already with bookmarks.




    It works when you click on the javascript link in-page, however when you bookmark the link, whenever you try and tap on it, it seems that the browser tries to download a file instead of execute the JavaScript on the current webpage. Maybe if someone were able to create a patch that forced javascript to be executed on the page when bookmarked, or even just put the javascript into a patch that one could activate with a soft button or a keystroke (if that's even possible). There are a lot of these bookmarklets too. Here's a link to some of the good ones from a previous post: 17 powerful bookmarklets for your iPhone

    It's a shame, these javascript actions have been out for so long and seem to be so close to actually working. I wish someone familiar with javascript or the browser at least gave an explanation of what the problem might be. :\

    I totally agree! I had actually just logged in to start this thread, but decided to take a look around. I'm glad to see I'm not the only person that finds it odd that the option was not built in.

    It should be right there! (top left>"Edit">"Find on Page" - +F)
    "" is the closest I could find to the meta-tap icon.

    I'm bumping this one again. Still a glaring oversight in the browser...
