Regarding the "Find in page" feature of Android's default and/or Google Chrome web browsers:

Is there a way to fine-tune the search parameters in order to search for strings with more precision or specificity (i.e. inclusivity/exclusivity)?

I've tried using regular expressions to narrow results, but they don't appear to be supported.

With Chrome for Android, you can't perform "advanced" search for example using regular expression. There are extensions such as Chrome Regex Search or find+ | Regex Find-in-Page Tool that allow to fine tune your searches on a page, but Chrome for Android does not support extensions.

If you are not opposed to the use of other browsers than Chrome, you can use Yandex browser or Kiwi browser (they are both based on Chromium. Install one of the extensions mentioned above as you will on your PC, then you will be able to narrow searches on a page.

  • It would be nice though wouldn't it. I haven't heard of these other browsers, but I can't think of a reason to only use chrome. It might be worth a look, thanks.
