    I have some long, text heavy websites I'm reading on safari. I want to find a keyword in the page. On a desktop I just hit ctrl+f or cmd+f. Is there a way of doing that on my iPad?

    Thanks in advance!

    You certainly have good searching skills for finding the solution within 4 minutes :D

    In case, someone is wondering how: type the search phrase in the google search box, a menu will appear, than tap On this page..

    So, every time I try using this feature to search a .txt file (I.e., video game walkthroughs on gameFAQS), the browser crashes on me...:confused:

    Anyone else have this problem?
