Finding a term or phrase is difficult if you look at long-form content. To make it easy, Chrome for Android has a feature called Find in Page under the menu option that helps search for the word on the page. It will display and highlight the matching phrase and have a navigation button to scroll through the results.
Find in page option is very helpful when looking up a specific term or word. The option will automatically search the entered keyword and display the number of repetitions.
During my graduation days, I was working on a project with much research work. I had to read citations, Wikipedia pages, research articles, etc., and find specific technical terms that matched my project requirement. Since then, I have been a fan of find in page feature on the Chrome browser.
You can search terms on the page and the paragraphs or short sentences just like we do a Google search.
This feature is available for the chrome android app. It works something similar to+ or + in page finder on our Chrome desktop browser.
You also have the option to navigate between the search results repetitions using the arrow buttons. The repetitions are highlighted in yellow.
Search and Find on Page
If you are reading long-form content and explicitly looking for any word, then finding in page option is helpful. One must know how to search on a page. Here are the steps to find the text:
- Launch the Chrome browser app.
- Open the Webpage that you want to search in.
- Tap on More for the options menu.
- Select the Find in Page option within the list.
- Enter the term or keyword that you want to find on the page.
- The keywords and repetitions will be highlighted on the page.
As mentioned, you can use the arrow button to skip the next search result and find the desired answer that you need.
The in-page search feature works only on the current page. However, if you’re searching within the website, you should use the search option available on the website.

As mentioned, the find or search-in-page feature is helpful for anyone who knows how to use it and can be vastly used for research or page lookup.
The find-in-page feature is like a blessing for a voracious reader who has to go through various articles for different types of work.
Similarly, you can also use Find in the page on Chrome for computers that work almost the same as the Android browser. In fact, you can use the keyboard shortcut to invoke the find on the page search box.
I think the find-in-page feature is excellent. It has helped me a lot during my graduation. What do you think about it?
