fiwt adds find-as-you-type to Apple's Safari Web browser. Also called type-ahead find, this feature is a very useful combination of searching and navigation. To search for something on the current page, just start typing it. The first match is immediately selected. The backslash key will find the next one. If the text found is a hyperlink, hitting return will follow it.

What's New

  • updated SIMBL interface

Any chance the developer will retake this project on? It seems to be abandoned :(

I can't seem to get this plugin to work on 10.4.8. I've tried it on my PowerBook G4 1.67 GHz, my 24" iMac and my MacBook, with no luck on either of them. Any suggestions?

Thank you. I was considering switching to Firefox for exactly this functionality, so thanks for letting me stay with my favorite browser. I would prefer a version that searches only for text in links, however, as I mainly use it for navigating without the mouse.

Great little piece of software, does it work just with html documents (i.e. not txt, for example), or am I missing something?

It seems that fiwt doesn't work properly on Tiger/Safari 2.0 (which isn't terribly surprising). I can type-ahead, and links are highlighted properly, but when I hit the Return key, Safari doesn't visit the link--it just ignores the keypress.
