    The new inline find feature in the Safari 3 beta is incredible. However, I am used to the "search for text when I start typing" feature in Firefox. Does anyone know of a modification or add-on that will allow for this kind of "type ahead" behavior in conjunction with the new inline find bar (i.e. start typing and the find bar pops up automatically with the search term)?

    Thanks for any ideas.

    Thanks for the info. I did try fiwt and it does provide type-ahead support, but it places the search term in the status bar and provides little visual feedback. If only there were an option in the preferences to trigger the inkine find bar automatically, that would make the new find feature much more handy, imho.....

    cmd+f doesn't work?

    BTW, in firefox, u don't need to press any key to start inline searching, just check start search as i type in preference panel, so u can just type what u are searching for directly.
