Kindle Fire Silk Browser: Search for Specific Text on a Webpage

A cool feature of the Kindle Fire’s Silk browser is the ability to search for words or phrases on a webpage. You can do this in Safari on iDevices too. Here’s how to do it on your Kindle Fire.

While on a webpage you want to search, click the menu icon at the bottom of the screen. Then tap Find on Page.

Then when you type in the entire word, you’ll see that term highlighted throughout the page.
