Feature iPhone is Missing that iPad definitely needs

There isn't much I miss on a full-sized browers, but I run into this everytime I try to do some research on the fly:

Find In Page. For surfing. (And I guess reading books).

It frustrates me to no end that I can get long web pages, but there is no good way to search for specific text within that page. (Jailbreak can do it, and there are apps, but they are really cumbersome tbh).

If the iPad is going to be for reading, it really needs this feature. Add it to the iPhone while they're at it.

Not a huge issue for me personally, but I see your point. I seldom use the search function in Firefox, but when I do it is very handy.

There is a bookmarklet that lets you easily search in websites on the iPhone. It uses Javascript and works directly in Safari. I'm sorry I don't have a link, but if you are interested in it I'm sure you will find it easily through Google.
