Today, thanks to our mobile devices and computers, we have the possibility to search for a specific term within a web page; for example, a word that is not visible when you quickly visit a site with verbose text and content. It’s a really handy feature that not everyone will know and that solves a problem for people who don’t want to waste too much time searching for specific information on the web.
For example with the Apple Mac on Safari, if we are browsing a web page, it is easy to search for a word: just press the cmd + F keys and type the word or phrase in the black search field that appears at the top right of the page. Or if we want to search for a specific word on a site and we are using Google Chrome, just click on the button with the three dots located at the top right and select the item Find from the context menu.
This guide, however, will explain in particular how to search for a word on a web page with iPhone on Safari. In reality, not everyone is familiar with this step with the iPhone , but let’s see how it is done.
Scrolling up and down the page, the bar with the Share button, History and the button with the design of the double window will appear at the bottom to see all the pages you have opened on Safari. Click on the Share button and from here you can select, among the various options, “Find on page”. Then you can enter the word in the search field (the number of occurrences on the page will also appear next to you) and that’s it. Safari will show you the position where the word or phrase you searched for appears and this will be visible thanks to the highlighting. Furthermore, within the page it will be possible to view all the occurrences of the search that you have just completed.
