Show HN: I built a really good Ctrl+F replacement

Hi HN,

Scout Search is a Find-in-Page replacement that uses semantic search (rather than character matching) to help you find what you're looking for on websites.

Try it out and let me know what you think.

Show HN: I built a really good Ctrl+F replacement

Great idea. I've often been annoyed by the regular search missing the things I'm looking for just because I didn't guess exactly the word the author of the page would have used to talk about the thing that I'm looking for.

Can you share what this uses in the background? Like, fastText, Haystack, the GTP-3 search endpoint...? Do you do any lemmatization? How are multi word expressions handled ("New York", "Model 3")?

Would rather use ctrl+f than relearn to use Ctrl+Shift+S and sending my search queries to a server.
