This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

"Find on page" should do for the vast majority of questions. Granted, it won't work for multi-page questions but those are exceedingly rare anyway – Pëkka Dec 10 '12 at 14:12

As described in the search help, you can use inquestion:## to search within a given question.

If you're viewing the question you wish to search in, you can use the shortcut inquestion:this, as in this example: inquestion:this "viewing"
