I've been thinking about some improvements for QWebEnginePage::findText to make it more powerful than QtWebKit's equivalent.
Features I'd like to see:
- A way to get the positions of all matches, to present the user with a list of matches, and the index of the currently selected match.
- An equivalent to QWebPage::FindWrapsAroundDocument and maybe the other QWebPage::FindFlags (though I don't need the others myself)
- The ability to search for a regex on the page instead of a fixed text
- A flag to start (or continue) the search at the position the page is scrolled to, rather than the top or the next match.
I have no idea how feasible those would be, which is why I decided to open a single bug for them for now, to discuss what makes sense and what doesn't.
