When I used IE I liked being able to type a word into the googlebar, highlight it and then quickly skim read the webpage.
While the search on this page option with the search bar is great, it only finds one instance at a time which often isn't a quick.

On this page you'll find bookmarklets that allow you to highlight each occurrence of a phrase in a page, with and without regular expressions:

Thanks for that.
Still wouldn't it be a good idea to add it to the searchbar? I doubt very many people know about those bookmarklets.

Sure. This was only meant as a workaround. :)
