Microsoft plans to bring back
For any Windows Phone 7 user out there, it might not be something used on a consistent basis, but the “Find on Page” feature with IE8 is nevertheless something handy to have on. However, it seems that Microsoft decided to remove this feature entirely with IE9 in Windows Phone Mango.

Fortunately, Microsoft has heard the complaints from numerous people and plans to bring back the feature sometime down the road. Well, the good news is that IE9 is capable of being upgraded independently of the operating system – meaning, it can potentially be brought back with some sort of update. However, it’s also possible that they will simply hold off from doing that, and instead, bring it back with the arrival of “Tango” way down in the road.

Nonetheless, we can only hope that Microsoft can quickly quash this issue by rolling out an update along with some other post Mango bug fixes included. In the meantime, you’re going to need to have some patience in finding specific text in HTML web pages with IE9.

by all means get one.. but microsoft did a bad move here... they got rid of this feature and they got rid of the tabs button.. u have to go into a menu to reach it--- unbelievably annoying... they also got rid of the stupid forward button... also very annoying... but the buy far most annoying thing is that if u go home and then go back to the internet pressing the back button will bring u home and not to the previous page-- and there is no way to get around that.... microsoft why wud u ruin the nodo browser!!
