It would be very good to have the standard Lion search behaviour implemented including incremental search, highlighting all occurrences etc. as shown in the attachment.

    It would be great, it's just proving to be more difficult to implement in Webkit than I imagined. I know it can be done, just have some more research to do. It's definitely a goal.
