    Hi there,

    How do I search a webpage for a word or term on Safari in my iPad?

    Thanks,
    iLed

    Type your search term in the Google search on the top right corner, then select "Search on this page".

    Click the little search bar on the top right, then type what you want to find and click on the "on this page" option on the drop down box. :)

    A related question: is there a way to make the search case sensitive and/or to search only for a whole word? Both of these features can be VERY useful.

    None of that is possible with the Safari search. Perhaps some other browser has this functionality of case-sensitive search?

    Even Safari in OSX isn't case or single word sensitive.
