Firefox is my default (only alternative to IE and Chromium) and Find as You Type is one of the main features i like.
Trying SB with / which should do the same and it doesn't work.
Can anyone confirm?

read this, Find As You Type for IE 6, 7

and this, Slimbrowser Toolbar FAQ

Having read those two informative pages. SB has an "alias" functionality where you can assign an alias to a commonly used abbreviations. Click Tools:Alias Definitions.... to access this feature and assign abbreviations as you might choose to do.

I do not know if SB makes use of the similar business that now comes with newer versions of IE. But I do know if I type an address or part of an address into the address bar that it drops down a list of similar addresses which I can choose from. Not exactly the same thing but it works well enough to mention here.

I'll be darn! IE 9,10 and 11 have 'find as you type' feature integrated!
Didn't know. Where is this in the options?

I'm not sure this is the first I've heard of Find As You Type as I'm not a firefox user. Making a guess I think it is integrated and known in IE as autocomplete.

Well, as far as I know, 'find as you type' and 'auto-complete' aren't quite the same.
It would be nice to know if I missed something in the options of the so elaborate IE browser.

Autocomplete has many parts, one of them completes your typing in the address bar by remembering URLs you've typed, I think the find as you go code was integrated into that part of autocomplete at some point because it did get better after the original implementation of it. Hence my conclusion which is a guess.

Enable feature similar to find as you type in Slimbrowser by going in to Tools > Options.
In option on the left select "Misc". Once in the miscellaneous section, on the right check mark "Use find bar instead of find dialog to search text".
No all you do is press ctrl+F and you have your tool bar to search text on the fly.

hope that helps. Cheers!
