Did they remove the feature where you could search a line of text and have it highlight every part where that text is used on your current page? Basically it's hitting control + f on a computer. If they did take it out I'm going back to ios6

I'm on my iPad Mini right now, and I don't see it. I will try to find it again after I return from taking my daughter to school.

its kinda of odd...


open the page you want to search for the text
now, in the url/search bar.. type the word to search for.
Dont hit enter/go.. instead scroll to the bottom of the popup results.

it shows

"On this Page (XX Matches)"
Find _____ <Click that

Yes, this is what I was going to post. It is there at the bottom of the hits for your search term.

Thanks. I found it, but placing it there or in that manner is impractical, in my opinion.

Thanks and like for static for finding that for me. Now my only major issue is the buttons glowing on the lock screen when you type your password lol. Other than that it's not too bad.

I believe it's not a glow but your wallpaper showing thru when you tap it

Can someone confirm this?
