Google is working on improved on-page search in Chrome

All modern web browsers support functionality to search for content on the active page. Most map the functionality to Ctrl-F, some also to F3 or just the dot-icon on the keyboard.

Google Chrome marks all matches on the page when you start to type automatically; the active match is highlighted in a different color (orange), the other hits on the page in yellow so that it is easier to find the current location on the page.

That's important, as you may use the shortcut or up and down search control buttons to jump to the next or the previous entry on the page.
