Using the Find Feature

The easiest way to search for text within a web page on Mac is by using the built-in Find feature. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open a web page: Launch your preferred web browser and navigate to the page you want to search.
  2. Activate the Find feature: Press Command + F on your keyboard or go to Edit > Find in the menu bar.
  3. Type in your search term: A small search box will appear at the top right corner of the page. Enter your desired keywords into this box.
  4. Navigate through matches: As you type, the browser will automatically highlight each instance of your search term on the page. You can use the arrow buttons in the search box to cycle through them.
  5. Modify search options: If you want more control over your search, click on the magnifying glass icon in the search box and choose from options like “Match Case” or “Match Whole Word”.

Using Keyboard Shortcuts

If you prefer using keyboard shortcuts, here are some handy options:

Using Extensions and Add-ons

In addition to the default browser features, you can enhance your page search capabilities by installing extensions or add-ons. These tools provide additional functionalities and customization options.

For example, if you use Google Chrome, you can install extensions like “SearchBar” or “Find in Page” from the Chrome Web Store. Firefox users can explore add-ons like “FindBar Tweak” or “HighlightAll” from the Mozilla Add-ons website.


Searching within a web page on Mac is a straightforward process. You can either use the built-in Find feature, utilize keyboard shortcuts, or enhance your search capabilities with browser extensions and add-ons.
