Commandeering the "Control F" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was at a website that is partially silverlight based, and they had overriden the response of the Control F.  Am I the only one who gets irritated when people over ride common functionality? 

    (Control F made a search box appear on their site.)

    It my opinion I found it more offensive than flashing text.

  • That is pretty silly, unless they were overriding it to provide their own specialized Find functionality. The keyboard override would only work when the input focus was within Silverlight.

  • Yeah, they had a find box and it was highlighted with the control F, but I had already seen the find box and chose not to use it.
