There's discussion about introducing find and findAll as an alternative to  
querySelector[All]. However, window.find exists already in Firefox and  
WebKit, and is for in-page text search. There's a placeholder for it in  
the spec.  
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/dnd.html#dom-find

Are Firefox and WebKit going to drop the old find()? Is there legacy  
content that feature detects for find() and would break if it changed  
semantics?
