Raise your hand if you’ve ever searched for something online, scrolled past the ads, clicked a link that appears to have the answer to your question (perhaps based on the search result preview snippet), and then spent too much time looking for the actual content you need. 🙋🏽♂️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏼 If the information you’re looking for is even there, it is most likely about halfway down the page. If you’re like us, you might have developed a habit of smashing the ⌘-F keyboard shortcut1 and repeating some or all of the exact same search terms you already submitted to the search engine (e.g. Google, DuckDuckGo, or Bing).

The Magic Highlighter automatically highlights your Google.com, DuckDuckGo.com, and Bing.com search terms and phrases on search result web pages.
The Magic Highlighter is our bid to put an end to this
The Magic Highlighter is a brand new Safari Extension that automatically highlights your Google.com, DuckDuckGo.com, and Bing.com search terms and phrases on search result web pages — saving you time, and helping you find what you’ve been searching for.
The Magic Highlighter is available to download for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
It’s easy to use thanks to direct integration with Safari — just install the app, enable the extension, and use Safari like you normally would.
Here’s what it looks like in action:
For more advanced users on Mac and iPad2, try the ⌘-Shift-F keyboard shortcut to change highlight colors, disable magic highlight terms or phrases, and more.
Oh, and there’s one more thing. If you enjoy The Magic Highlighter enough to share it with your friends, we’ll even send you a cool sticker!
