You may want to find a particular word or phrase within a page presently loaded in the web browser. For example, you may have searched for a specific word and been presented with a web page that is said to contain the word concerned. However, when a web page is loaded it is not always immediately apparent where on the page the word is located.

Indeed, it often appears unlikely that the page even contains the word in question. Using the ‘Find (on this page)’ option in Explorer or ‘Find…’ option in Netscape, both under the ‘Edit’ pull-down menu on the Main Menu bar, a small ‘Find’ window is launched which provides you with the ability to search for a particular word or phrase on the web page presently loaded in the browser.

Using the FIND feature will not find words on other web pages even though they may be part of the same web site.
