efTwo Supercharges Chrome’s Find On Page

Chrome: efTwo adds a new, more powerful “find on page” feature to Google Chrome, letting you search for multiple words at once as well as variations on each word, not exact matches.

Chrome’s Ctrl+F feature is a great way to jump to the most important part of a page, but it isn’t very powerful. For example, if you search for a word, it’ll only find exact matches for that word, not variations (e.g. spark and sparking), so unless you know the exact phrase you’re looking for, it won’t find it. efTwo fixes this problem and more with its own search box: just hit Ctrl+Alt+F (or one of its other shortcuts) and it’ll bring up a new box from which you can find words (and their variations) on that page.

It also lets you search for multiple words at once, and colour codes each one as you scroll down the page. You can even set it to automatically fill the search box with your most recent Google search terms that brought you to that page, saving you from having to type them in yourself.

efTwo is a free download, works wherever Google Chrome does. Check out the video above to see it in action. (Oz ed note: As efTwo was developed in Australia, we actually mentioned it some time back, but we’re happy the US team gave it some extra love.)
