Hey guys I found something just now that I think is really cool, and is a feature I thought was missing. In the stock safari, if you click on the search bar in the top right and type something in, you can scroll down to "on this page" and click " find ____ ". It then shows you everything on the page that matches what you typed it. Just like ctrl f on windows. Just making sure you guys know about this, I know I sometimes really wished I had this feature before so hopefully this helps someone out.

Hmm surprised there are people that didn't know this. Pretty much every browser or anything that has a search bar but no find on this page offers this feature.

I guess without just finding this there is no way you'd know about it.

I've been using iOS for years, and just found this out a couple months ago from a MacLife article in their tips & tricks section. I find reading them from time to time I pick up a useful something here and there.

Seems like this feature has slipped thru a few seasoned iOS users, including myself. It's nice to discover it because discoveries like this don't come too often anymore. ;)

Please don't take this in a condescending way (believe me, there's a lot about a lot of things I don't know), but if you didn't already know of a feature that's been around for years, then my guess is that there's probably a lot more you don't know. A scan of the User Guide or a couple of tips-n-tricks blogs/write-ups/threads might be useful.
