Firefox: If you use Ctrl+F like a fiend, this simple extension will add a drop-down history list so you can access your most recent search terms on a given page.
If you’re looking for something specific and using Firefox’s “Find on this Page” feature repeatedly, it can get annoying to retype your search terms every time. After installing FindList (and checking the “Keep Entries” box in its settings), the Find box will contain a drop-down that shows you all your recent terms. It’s pretty handy to have around if you use Ctrl+F a lot. Note that you need to hit enter after typing in your search terms to save them in the dropdown, though that’s a pretty easy habit to get into.
FindList is a free download, works wherever Firefox does. We couldn’t find a Chrome equivalent, but if you know of one, please let us know in the comments below.
