30 Second Tips - Find Text On A Webpage

This is the 23rd post in a series called 30 Second Tips. My goal is to show you how to do some neat stuff in 30 seconds or less!

The other day I was trying to find a particular person's name on a website. Most people would scroll down the page until they came across the name they were looking for. There is a much easier way to do this and I am going to show you how on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Mobile Safari.

If you are using Internet Explorer you can visit Microsoft's website for instructions.
