So there’s a lot of hubbub about the cool new features in the upcoming iOS 4.2 release that will unify the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with a single consistent OS. Among the notable new features are AirPlay and AirPrint which are all well and good but my favorite new feature is actually “Find In Page”. That’s right.. you can now search within a web page just like in Safari!

The way it works is you simply initiate a search in the Google search box and at the bottom of the suggested list is a “On This Page” section:

Simply click on that and just like in Safari it will highlight all the occurrences of your search.


In my book this has been a long time coming.. nice to see it finally arrive.
