    Find As You Type for IE

    Certain applications, such as the Emacs text editor and Mozilla Firefox, provide a very convenient method of searching in a document: every time you type text in the search box it automatically searches the document. You don't need to click "Find" or do anything else, just type, and it'll search. This type of search is sometimes called "interactive search", "incremental search" or "look ahead search". I call it "find as you type".

    Unfortunately, Internet Explorer does not provide this functionality, not even in Internet Explorer 7. Fortunately, Internet Explorer can be extended which allows third party developers to close this gap.

    Find As You Type for Internet Explorer is an add-on for Internet Explorer 6 and newer that provides this kind searching functionality. It adds a toolbar to Internet Explorer where you can type search terms, and it will find them, as you type.

    There's also InlineSearch / HomePage. It is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>. It takes over CTRL+F and dynamically displays a toolbar.

    Joe,

    "Find As You Type" uses the "Ctrl + F" hotkey also. So far, I am impressed with it. This little addon is also advertised on the Microsoft MarketPlace list of addons, etc.

    Inline search is also at Windows Marketplace: IE Add-Ons.
