Find texts with regular expressions.
This extension enables you to use regular expressions to find texts.
1. Click the address bar or hit [Ctrl + L] to focus.
2. Enter fr and hit [Tab] to initiate finding.
3. Enter a pattern and hit [Enter] to complete and add the pattern to the find history.
If a pattern contains one or more uppercase characters, the find will be case-sensitive.
If you want to do a case-sensitive find with all lowercase characters, append one slash to the pattern (e.g., wow/).
If you want to do a find that is not case-sensitive with all lowercase characters and ends with a slash, escape the last slash (e.g., wow\/).
The followings are enabled if one or more texts are matched.
4a. Click the Find RegExp's page action button in the address bar to show the popup.
5a. Click the left arrow or right arrow button to jump to a previous or next match. Alternatively, you can hit [Enter] to jump if the button has a focus. You can move the focus by clicking a button or hitting [Tab].
6a. Click the x button to clear matches.
4b. Click somewhere on the page to move focus there.
5b. Hit [Ctrl + .] to jump to a next match, or [Ctrl + ,] for a previous match.
You can right-click on the matches to select them before a context menu appears.
