The idea is that the correct text-finding algorithm depends on the person using the computer. For many US users, this behavior is helpful.

I think this bug goes in a different category than the rest.

I don’t know whether websites are using this or not.

A relatively unimportant side note: We have used it for regression testing for the find machinery inside WebCore so if we did remove it we’d have to add some sort of testing hook. Removing this and reimplementing those tests would mean that these tests that currently run in the web browsers would instead work only inside a testing tool like DumpRenderTree.
