Microsoft To Bring Back WP7 IE9 ‘Find On Page’ In the Future
If you are using Windows Phone 7 Mango, let it be Beta or RTM on your developer phone or on your regular wave-one device, you definitely noticed that, while browsing a web page using the built-in Internet Explorer 9, there’s no way of finding something on a page.
Microsoft has removed the “find on page” feature that allows you (a la desktop CTRL+F) to find specific words in a web page. Apparently, Redmond is planning to bring back the feature sometime in the future, says Charles Morris on the Windows Phone Developer Blog. IE9, in theory, will be able to receive updates independently of the OS so we’re expecting Microsoft to bring back the ability to find text on a page as soon as possible!
