Freedom from Internet Explorer "Find" dialog
September 14, 2006 Leave a comment
The most annoying feature in Internet explorer is the find feature. I hated IE for not making the find feature better since long time. The stupid find dialog of Internet Explorer shows you a classic popup where you need to input your keyword and hit enter, enter, enter until you find the word.
Firefox has made this “find” feature more usability driven and it works as “find as you type”. That was so cool.
Now IE7’s DOM model allows you to have control over HTML and text. Using this feature, IE7 team has published a small script which does a “Search inline” here. One of the 3rd party plugin which works the same way can be seen here…
