Description

i've found type ahead find quite useful in mozilla. it'd be good to have it in
chimera, too. (phoenix has it, but then again, it's trunk-based, not branch-based.)

hm, find as you type doesn't seem to be working with today's (2003.05.05.04) build.

a. start typing in a page (should automatically start fayt in link's mode)
--nothing happens.

b. hit apostrophe key ('), then start typing in a page (should manually start
fayt in link's mode) --nothing happens.

c. hit forward slash key (/), start typing in a page (should manually start fayt
in text mode) --nothing happens.

any ideas?

works great in 2003.05.06.04. yay!

note: the current default behavior is that find as you type automatically finds
linked textual content.

you can still use the manual shortcuts of / (forward slash) to find all text and
' (apostrophe) to find linked text.

Shoud this be a new bug?

In Mozilla you can use find-as-you-type then cmd-g to find again

This isn't happening in Camino.

with find as you type in camino.
