Is there something like command + F in Safari for iPad?
Whenever I need to find something on the site, I just click the cached site link, there you can see words highlighted
I doubt Safari does, but the Atomic Browser does.
I've got Atomic. Pretty cool. Haven't bothered to sync my bookmarks yet though... So I'm not using it as much. I'm such a slug.
I found the reason. Because of the character limit MacRumors Forums imposes on lines of text, when you copy the text above and paste it in the URL bookmark field on the iPad, it inserts several spaces between the characters. I counted five when I just tested it. After you paste it in the field, go through and delete all the spaces then it works fine.
This sounds fantastic, but it isn't working. Can you take another look at it?
Cool... I just found the instructions online for this hack. Nice! Thanks, Halvetica!

Tried it on iPhone this time (since you said it works) and with no spaces in the code. Still not working.
I just tried it on my iPhone (already tried it on my iPad) using the exact same text I quoted above. It worked fine. But I had to remove the spaces. Perhaps you missed one, I found it less difficult to find them on the iPhone.
You can see where the spaces are. They are at the ends of 5 of the 7 lines I pasted in my first message. They can be found at the ends of lines 1, 2, 3, 5, 6.
Scanning backwards through the link as you would using the magnifying glass on the iPad or iPhone, they are between:
Here's a much easier way. Just download this free App.
Watch this video and instructions. Easy.

Finally found one that works:
Copied the same thing from somewhere else and it worked. Maybe I missed a space earlier on. Oh well, thanks again for pointing this out.
Atomic is one dollar and iCab is two dollars. You pay $1 for a Coke and $2 for a latte. Save yourself some aggrevation.
Pages has a find (and replace) feature, so it's odd that they didn't give Safari the same. But you can tell that all the initial Apple iPad apps are a little bare, quirky, and clearly rushed out for launch. Could be something they'll add in an update...after they improve the page cacheing I hope, because that is the #1 annoyance with Safari right now.
Another thing I'd like to see in Safari is a vertical list of open thumbnails on the left side of the screen in landscape mode (split view), which would be consistent with how Mail works. It's a bit cumbersome to have to close out into the separate thumbnails page to switch to another page.
