? When does that happen?
I use command+f all the time to search pages, but never had a page suggest it.
Ctrl+F works fine in some mobile browsers
@electrineer I‘d like to see your Ctrl key on your mobile device please ^^
I know, you can connect to physical keyboards but who does that with a browser? Yes. No one.
And those websites not only ignore mobile users. They also ignore mac users. In fact, they are just assuming that there is only windows. Quite funny for a website.
I’ve had two instances of such ignorance in website projects I was involved in. They treated me like I was nit picky and ignored that.
Today I found an example in the web by accident.
This is just sad, IMHO.
@electrineer The advice to use Ctrl + F is most certainly hardcoded. And it makes no sense for mobile devices, because almost no one is using a hardware keyboard for web browsing in mobile. And even if people were using hardware keyboards, it wouldn't be clear what Ctrl means on or works for iOS for example.
Maybe I am nitpicky here but I think the website should tell the user to use the browser search function and not to press a particular combination of keys. Maybe the keys should be shown as an example.
