When viewing

Yes, ChromeCacheView is nifty freeware that allows you to view the cache with a bit more readability.

It has a "Find" feature as well:

Another method with a better searching function would be to open the cache in Notepad++.

Save the cache by pressing Ctrl+S once on the page, then open the saved .html file in Notepad++.

Notepad++'s searching:

Downside to using Notepad++, however, is that you'll see the cache in raw format.


This is probably rather naive approach, but you could go to the directory containing cached files and then search them using the file manager of your choice.

I hope I understood correctly that you actually want to search in the contents of the cache files.
