looking for firefox plugin I think


Hello,

I was wondering if there are any utilities out there that can search for a word or a phrase in a web page. I don't know if firefox has such a plugin.

Thanks,

KW

can't you just do Ctrl-F for Find? then F3 for Find Next.

if thats not what your looking for, could you be a little more detailed about what you need to do.

How about this :
> Google >> Advanced Search > "Search within a site or domain"

Or you could just memorize the command to do so. When searching with Google, type:

Code:
site:http://sitename.com/
where sitename is obviously the name of the site.

Besides that, the FIND utility in Firefox should be more than enough.

Google's site search feature and Firefox's Find are totally different things.

Why are you guys putting them in the same basket?

Not putting them in the same basket. I was merely suggesting a better way to use site search. I know they're two totally different things. I didn't mean for my last statement to imply that they were equivalents.

But thanks for pointing out, win32sux! It's definitely important to clarify.

ctrl+f opens the firefox search box. That will let you search for words on the page, if you need more than that I would use Google.

Apparently quotes don't count toward the minimum character limit.

Maybe because the OP wasn't clear about what they actually wanted to do.
