Would love to see type-ahead-find native out of the box from Edge!

New Contributor

Would love to be able to start typing and Edge automatically starts find on page (without user needing to hit Ctrl-F or Command-F first).

 

Or at least would like to know why it's not a thing:

* Is it hard to implement?

* Is there some UI/UX rule or law that type ahead find is not a good thing?

 

In the meantime we have this extension:

That is an interesting suggestion.  I can relay that to the product team.

I second that. I recently moved to Edge after 17 years of using Firefox, and that's one of the few features that I missed. Thanks for the extension!
I've been using Firefox too but I don't find it very useful.
because I don't want search on page to be initiated everytime I press any key on the keyboard.

@HotCakeX within Firefox it's an option. You don't have to activate it if you don't want to use it
