    1. How do you search an entire web page for a specific word? I thought I had read this would be an upcoming ability.

    2. How do you turn predictive text on for the Google search bar?

    *Edited for clarity

    Does anyone else the address text start to fade to a lighter color as it gets near the refresh symbol?

    As far as I know the search page function is only available on iPad where it appears above the keyboard after you click the Google box.

    If you simply search in the searchbox as if you were doing an internet search you will notice that when the auto-suggestions would come up automatically towards the end/bottom of them there would be search results for anything on the current page that matches what you are searching for.

    Thank you!


    So it seems as though the Google search box does not do predictive text? This makes my stubby fingers angry

    I'm pretty sure it does, unless this isn't predictive text.

    What I mean is if I type in "encyclopeda" it won't pop-up with the correction "encyclopedia" above the text--yes, the Google search will predict that I meant "encyclopedia," but if I'm searching using a sentence or phrase with several misspellings, Google may not get it.
