Chrome iOS has an extra feature where you can search for specific keywords or topics on a webpage. This feature is handy when finding something on a website filled with text and paragraphs.

As a college student, I often encountered projects that needed thorough research. As Wikipedia articles are humongous and lengthy to read simultaneously, the find-on page helps find the exact word or critical term you seek.

The find-on-page feature is already available on the Windows PC and macOS, which you can use by keyboard shortcuts — Ctrl + f or F3 for Windows and + f keys on macOS.

The feature is extensively helpful for the masses, so Chrome iOS/iPadOS got this feature in the recent app update.

Bottom Line

the chrome iOS Find on Page feature, commonly known as the website search option, is impressive for any scholar or student. This feature can help you to research anything on a webpage, including links, downloads pages, definitions, and much more.

Overall, the feature is extensively useful, and it is a surprise that Chrome iOS/iPadOS got this feature late than its Android counterparts. But it’s great to use it on your iPhone and iPad devices.

Similarly, you can also use the find on the page on the Chrome computer. It’s mostly the same, and you can use the keyboard shortcut on the computer.
