How to Find in page or search for text in mobile browser?

If you want to find a text or word in a page, it is pretty simple in desktop browsers, but this feature is almost invisible on mobile phones.

On Desktop, clicking CTRL+F opens a search box to find the text on that web page.  Type your keyword in the box to get the search results of the document. In mobiles, this is quite different as mobile operating system lacks a keyboard and interface. Due to this Find in page option or search for text option is not visible as other features and it is out of sight.

Fire up Chrome on your mobile.Open any web page or desired web page. Open the menu by tapping the three verticle dots in the top right corner of the application. In the menu, click on Find in Page. A search box appears. Type the word you want to find in page. Chrome will find all the results of that keyword in the page highlighted in yellow color. There is also a bar to the right showing frequency of the word. Scroll down to quickly access the word in the page.
