I am looking for information on the internet, and now Google found some interesting websites for me. I can see most of the info I am searching for in the Google-preview of the website, but when I go to the website using the link Google provides, it opens a page with so much info that I can’t find what I’m looking for…
On my Mac, in Safari, I would typ the [CMD]+[F] key-combo and get a search field in the top right of the webpage where I can typ what I am looking for exactly, and it will highlight all occurrences of this search term on the webpage and guide me to them instantly…
But how can I do something similar on my iPhone ?
Since you don’t have a keyboard with the option to press the [CMD]+[F] key-combo on your iPhone, Apple has come up with a slightly different solution for searching within a webpage :
- in Safari, go to the webpage that should have the information you are searching for
- when the webpage is open in Safari, tap on the bottom of the screen (about 1cm from the bottom)
- when the top & bottom bars come up, click on the “Share”-button (the square with the arrow pointing upward)
- in the menu that comes up, click on the “Find On Page”-button (looking glass icon)
- in the search field that comes up, type your search term
- then all occurrences of your search term will be highlighted and you can flip through them using the up & down arrows on the left (next to the search field)
- when you want to go back to your regular website viewing, click on the “Done”-button
That’s it !
