One of my favorite features of Mozilla Firefox is the "Search for text when I start typing" feature found in the "Advanced" options. Is there an extension out there that will add this feature or another way of adding it to Google Chrome?

In addition to hitting F3 to start it you mean? – random Aug 11 '10 at 3:42
Exactly, in FF as long as focus is not in a text box or something when I start typing it starts searching on the page, a feature I'm missing quite a bit in Chrome. – heavyd Aug 11 '10 at 3:45

Try the Type-ahead-find extension

  • Start writing (or press /) to start text search.
  • Press ' to search only links.

Installed and tested, feels just like you've turned on the option in Firefox.
