is there a way to search within a browser (with any of them) using regular expression? Let's say I want to search for either "python" or "php" I don't want to have to do this twice. Ideally, this could be done within the regular GUI, but if not, using add-ons/plug-ins with Web Inspector (webkit) or Firebug is fine too. Thanks!

using the browser's built-in search? (CTRL+F, etc.) – jnpcl Oct 23 '10 at 19:53
@jnpcl as far as I know, no browser's built-in search allows regexp search. – ceiling cat Oct 25 '10 at 1:59

Within a single page? Install the "highlight regexp" bookmarklet for JavaScript regexps.
