    "Find on Page" is attached to the keyboard. I don't remember it being there before.

    I know its different on the iPhone, but I guess thats because of the limited space. Anyways... I like it.:)

    Not to the new iPad, but I think it is new to 5.1.

    It's not new on the iPad, and it has been around since before 5.1

    How did you get the microphone to appear on the keyboard in safari? I only have it with the messages app.

    Within Safari dictation doesn't seem to work in the address bar. It only works in the search field. And then, of course, when entering text within a webpage - like I just did with this post :)

    How are you attaching a pic from Safari? On the iPad? I can't figure it out. :(

    Really hope this comes to the iPhone soon. It's the one feature I've always wanted.

    It is in the iPhone. It's just in the google search box instead of on the keyboard.

    That's been on iPad since 4.2 or 4.3. One of those.

    To clarify, are you saying you really hope for a search-within-page feature on the iPhone? Or do you specifically want it above the keyboard like in the screenshot.

    Because the iPhone already has a search-within-page feature it's just a little harder to get to.

    I hadn't used 5.1 on the 2, so I didn't know about this.

    Very cool, I used that all the time and it did seem inefficient before.

    They already have this for iPhone. You have to go to the upper right search bar and then scroll down until you see it.

    Wow I feel really stupid now, since I use my iPhone all the time and never bothered using that.

    Take screenshot. Upload to dropbox. Attach to post using browser on my mac, which I remote control using LogMeIn from my iPad!

    I have never noticed that FIND before and have always wanted that feature.

    I may not have the new iPad but I now have FIND on page. Wahoo!!!

    Wow. As a heavy user, I'm ashamed to say I never noticed that. Thanks for the tip!
