    No jailbreak required. Found here:

    Just wanted to remind all since they may be a lot of new members with iPad 2. You should check out the Safari+ add-ons made by ipuhelin.com that add a lot of cool features to Safari mobile browser. This works on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. Some people sell this information on the App Store but iPuhelin has the clearest simplest explanation i've seen.

    There are a few add-ons you can add but my must have is the "Find in Page" and "Scroll to End". "Find inPage" will highlight all instances of a word you want to find on a webpage. (check "Find in Page 2" it will prompt you to skip to the word in cases where the page is super long.)

    These features are simple to add to your Safari browser. Just bookmark the page as instructed. Then go to the bookmark folder and "edit". Select the bookmark you added and edit the code by deleting " http://ipuhelin.com/en/safariplus/__a__# " from the beginning. That is all. You can now execute each time on a webpage by going to the bookmark and selecting it.

    You can also move them to the bookmark bar and activate the bookmark bar in settings of Safari for quick launch.

    Does the iPad 2 version of iOS 4.3 not have this built into Safari anyway? The iPhone version certainly does rendering this service (which can use this to track where you are surfing and then sell that to advertisers if they want) completely useless.

    Nice information thanks. 99 cents gets you a much better browser though. Unfortunately apple still has no way afaik to set a default other than safari so without jailbreak it's unfortunately necessary to wind up there on occasion, so these can definitely be useful.

    Yes, you can do a search in the current page with iPad 2 (and 1). If I remember correctly, this came with iOS 4.2.

    Opps you are right I missed that. The find text is activated by just typing the word on the google search bar and selecing find on page on the bottom.

    However iPuhelin does list more cool stuff like the "Scroll down" or "transalate" or "open all photos"

    Still worth checking out their other stuff.

    I have a similar JavaScript bookmark that brings up a button that hits z to scroll through new blog comments on SBNation, the one on this page to scroll to the end is also going to be useful, thanks.
