tips on using the ipad browser
Search for text on each page
A very useful tool currently missing in the iPad version of Safari is the ability to search for text within a page. This is especially annoying if you follow a link on Google and end up on a very long page with no idea where you appear to your search.
A workaround for this, is get into the habit, when searching the Internet, visit the Google "cached" (stored and indexed) version of a web page, instead of the "live" version. Here you will find a link for this option next to each of the results when you Google search. Click on the "Cached" and see a version of the page that each of your search terms were highlighted in a different color in the - then almost as good as in the situation, the "Find" option.
