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.  

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
