Most browsers already have a page search function built into them, so you do not need any redundant application to search for words.

Firefox or Mozilla, for example, allow the user to use either Control +F, or the path "Edit/Find in this page" to bring up a search box.

Edit: just to be complete, since quietman7 gave the IE information, Opera also uses Control +F to show its "find box."

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

In Firefox, click on Edit in the top menu and then "Find in this page"
In IE, click on Edit and then "Find (on this page)"

Both will provide a box for you to type in the word you are looking for and begin a search.
