Search text with ‘Find on Page’ in Brave browser on a Computer

Are you trying to search and find text on the page in the Brave browser on your computer? Use built-in search functionalities to find specific content within a page.

The Find on Page is a pretty useful feature that allows the browser to search the text, term, or phrases within the web page content. The Brave browser has the Find option under the menu list, which we can also active using Ctrl/Cmd + F shortcut key. The Find feature does not show search results from the web but just on the active page.

Search and Find on Page on Brave browser

Gone are the days when users would need to read through a wall of text to find a particular phrase or term that they were looking for. Quickly finding a phrase or a specific word has become faster and easier, thanks to features like the search and find feature.

Browsers these days have the find-on-page feature that aids users in locating what they had in mind. It is similar to the find and replaces feature that word processing tools have.

Brave browser has a search and finds feature too. It has several unique features that make it one of the most acceptable browsers of these times, but I’ll discuss the search and finding an essential feature.

Before looking at the complete process, let me tell you what the search and find feature is all about.

The find and search function comes in handy when users need to find a specific thing from a host of other things. Instead of scouring through the page looking for a particular word/sentence, you can save time by using the find and search feature.

The find and search feature brings up the search results within seconds. You can review the results to find what you are looking for quickly.

  1. Hello!
    I’m using brave 1.52.130, with some web pages with a form using TextField, the content is 1.728.657 chars (32.441 lines) and when I use Find inside the Page, Brave become very slow to show the result, move the scroll bar of the text filed and so on.
    Is this common ?
    My PC w10 have 16gb ram and Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 core, 8 processors
    There is a solution ? thanks.

    1. Hi Raffaele,
      If the page is huge, the browser consumes high memory resources for rendering it. When you use the ‘Find’ option, the browser invokes additional process threads to find the text on the page. Hence, it’s expected to have some impact on browser performance. You will find this issue even on the browsers like Chrome, Edge, etc.

      Few workarounds that you can try:
      1. Let the page load/render completely and then start using the Find option (After the page is loaded, the processes will be free for Find).
      2. Disable the Brave Extensions if not required (each extension consumes resources).
      3. Close the applications and programs on your PC, and let only Brave run.
      4. Limit the number of open tabs (each tab consumes the process).

      I hope this helps!

  2. The search & find (command F) doesn’t seem to work as well as it does in say Firefox. Is there anything to improve the functionality of fins & search on a page?


  3. 22-08-02, I’ve been using Brave as my browser for about a year now and it works well, for the most part. The Brave search engine is still hit and miss, but seems to be in improvement mode. The Find on the open page function is pretty good, except on pages where “Load More” must be clicked. Today, I’m using it on an online opened PDF document and the highlighting of the found term is so pale, low-contrast and tight to the words vs a nice bright rectangular box, that it is effectively not useful. No, I refuse to create yet another acct on Github or wherever just to say that. Have a nice day.
