Yes, command-F finds, and command-G finds the next occurrence. My point is that OW's command-F find/command G next are not a slightly-longer equivalent to find-as-you-type.

Other Browsers' find-as-you-type move the system cursor (highlight) with the keyboard input, so one can always act on the found text immediately, without needing to move the pointer/cursor with the mouse (or an alternate input device).

At least with Firefox, command+g functions the same as with OmniWeb. So I'm still confused why you say we need to move the pointer/cursor with the mouse. Hitting command+g highlights the next instance, just like Firefox.
 
thanks Ken

With public beta 1 out, I hope it won't be long before this great feature returns.
 
I can't wait for this feature either. I'm so used to it in Safari (thanks to SafariStand) that I really miss it in Omniweb. Here's to a quick implementation.
 
I second (or third!) this :cool:

So probabilities are high for an incremental search for next OW. This is great news.

Thanks. Incremental Search really makes laptop browsing better.
 
So if I understand correctly (I just downloaded OW), right now you can do find-as-you-type for links but not for regular text, and the latter is expected soon?
 
Err no. No incremental search at all for now and it should ship with 6.0. What you *do* have for now is regular expression searches—something I know only one other browser to have, and this is a text browser.
