Do whatever you want with this code. I only ask that you check out Dash, my Snippet Manager and Documentation Browser app.

Drop-in WebView subclass that adds Safari-style in-page search-result highlighting.



  • Highlight search results.
  • Show position of search results by highlighting the scrollbar.
  • Maintain text size (zoom level) between launches.

Project Goals:

  • Avoid JavaScript.
  • Avoid blocking the main thread as much as possible.
