    How many times have you just wanted to find a specific word or phrase on a web page in Safari Mobile, but could not? Well, I have!

    How many think that this is a feature that should be added to Safari Mobile and fast?

    I've wanted this since I first experienced mobile safari. It seems like a no-brainer when your using such a small screen.

    hmmmmm never thought about that. I really like the idea though.

    I use find on my computer all the time. This would be a welcome addition IMO

    Before Apple implements it natively, it could be easily done with a bookmarklet.

    Me too. I frequently want this feature. Even the browser that came with my old Palm Pilot had this feature.

    Google Safari+. That's where I heard how to do it first.

    I agree, in fact Safari should have a sixth button--- one that opens up a menu with options like Find and Print (print to bluetooth or networked printers). In fact, some of the other apps could use this too.

    I'd love to see this. I was looking at someones IMDB entry the other day and wanted to find a specific movie. Find would have been hella helpful.

    Ctrl + F is a feature I would use a lot. I can't believe it is still not available.

    Yep, I'd love a search feature brought into Safari and also into the document viewer especially for pdf files.

    How about search for Mail attachments? I can't count the number of times I've gotten 30+ page documents and needed to get to a specific part.
