Find words or phrases on every page, link, or new tab. Ctrl+Shft+F toggles on/off. Persistent finds, just like you would expect.
Ever been in hot pursuit of a fact or data item on a busy web page? Sure, we all have. So naturally we do a Ctrl-F and type in the search word or phrase to highlight the term anywhere on the page. Problem solved. Or is it?
No. Because as soon as your research requires you follow a link or you decide to open a new tab to broaden your search parameters, your "find" term is no longer active. Frustrating, right?
FindAlways™ is a turbo-charged version of the traditional search function. Simply toggle it on or off with the Ctrl-Shft-F keystrokes and type in the word or phrase and hit the Enter [or Return] key. Now, no matter where your search takes you, following links or following links of links, or links of those links [you get the idea , right?], your term is always highlighted. How cool is that?
Better yet, you may still use the traditional "find" to add clarity. For example, if your FindAlways™ term is "riverfront" and while viewing a very dense text ladden page, you want to see references to riverfront docks, simply do the traditioanl find for the word "docks". There instantly you have all the docks highlighted as well as the riverfront docks.
I needed this functionality so I had one of my colleagues, an amazing dev, create it. And now I am making it free for your use as well. Enjoy.
UPDATE (SEP 08, 2017): We found a glitch in the extension. On rare occasions if you are entering text inside an input box on some sites, like Facebook, if you type type the active search word the input function will fail. You will begin to see your typing "overwrite" itself. We are looking at various fixes, but don't have a solution yet. I find this tool too valuable to remove from the webstore. Stay tuned.
