Most Firefox users know about the super-fast in-page search (ctrl+F/Command+F) – it’s one of those features that have been there since Firefox 1 and prevent users from switching back to other web browsers.

Did you know that you can instantly search for any text on a web page by hitting the forward slash and typing that word? For example, you want to find “Firefox” on this page, you would type /firefox. Then the first instance of “Firefox” will appear highlighted. This slash search feature is really just a shortcut to ctrl+F/Command+F but it shaves precious micro-seconds off of your workday.
