Google Chrome’s helpful scrollbar ‘find’ visualisation

I spend most of my browsing life in Google Chrome these days and I’m a less angry more satisfied person because of it. But only today have I ever never noticed this handy little built-in visualisation feature.

When you run a ‘find’ operation for a given term, the vertical scroll bar highlights shows you where, on the current page, instances of the keyword you searched for appear, allowing you to quickly navigate around the search results.

Reminds me of the great New York Times State of the Union address keyword visualisation feature.

That’s wicked! Hadn’t thought of you as an angry person before though :)

Oh you’d be surprised sir, Internet Explorer and I have not been getting on very well for a long time now…
