Find RegExp

Description from extension meta

Find texts with regular expressions.

Image from store Find RegExp
Description from store This extension enables you to use regular expressions to find texts. The patterns you can use are Javascript RegExp Object's regular expressions. 1. Click the address bar or hit [Ctrl + L] to focus. 2. Enter fr and hit [Tab] to initiate finding. 3. Enter a pattern and hit [Enter] to complete and add the pattern to the find history. If a pattern contains one or more uppercase characters, the find will be case-sensitive. If you want to do a case-sensitive find with all lowercase characters, append one slash to the pattern (e.g., wow/). If you want to do a find that is not case-sensitive with all lowercase characters and ends with a slash, escape the last slash (e.g., wow\/). The followings are enabled if one or more texts are matched. 4a. Click the Find RegExp's page action button in the address bar to show the popup. 5a. Click the left arrow or right arrow button to jump to a previous or next match. Alternatively, you can hit [Enter] to jump if the button has a focus. You can move the focus by clicking a button or hitting [Tab]. 6a. Click the x button to clear matches. 4b. Click somewhere on the page to move focus there. 5b. Hit [Ctrl + .] to jump to a next match, or [Ctrl + ,] for a previous match. You can right-click on the matches to select them before a context menu appears. There are pages where this extension doesn't work well or completely. - Tricky pages - Cross-domain iframes and frames - Chrome web store

  • (2020-07-14) Eric DeRosia: I love this tool. It works as advertised. I'll give it my highest compliment: this functionality should be built directly into Chrome.
  • (2013-06-01) Kevin Ying: Works as advertised. I use this extension to find patterns of hosts on our build servers to help my eyes when selecting servers to rebuild. I'd add a 5th star if there was a toggleable option to replace the Ctrl+F functionality with this one.

  • (2017-03-20, v:0.2.1) Gregory Tuzov: How to manage results of the search?
    Imagine that I've got some regex and some fragments on the page fit it. For example there are 20 fragments. How can I switch between results of the search?
  • (2017-02-17, v:0.2.1) Alexander Karpov: Не отображается иконки
    Не отображается иконка для открытия окна навигации по найденным значениям. Но всё равно огромное спасибо!

  • (2013-06-01, v:0.2.1) Kevin Ying: Replace the Ctrl+F
    Is there any way to add an option to replace the Ctrl+F with the fr functionality?
