Adds find-as-you-type to Safari.

Overview

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 in fiwt

Version 0.5:
  • compatible with Safari on OS X 10.4
  • updated SIMBL interface

Requirements are contradictory: Safari 1.2 needs OS X 10.3...

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

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.

It's pretty great, but there is one major issue with it: When fiwt is enabled, I can't type into Flash movies, such as those used by Type Foundries offering font previews (fontbureau.com, for one). Hopefully that'll get fixed soon.
