That's an extremely vague description. What exactly are you imagining doing with Alfred and what do you think should happen then?

fair enough...

 

let's pretend I go to https://daringfireball.net and instead of read all his posts I just bring Alfred and write a word I know it's inside of the post I'm looking for... when I hit enter that word is selected in the page I'm reading.

So you want to trigger Safari's own search via Alfred?

 

Put your query on the find pasteboard with the bash/zsh command echo "$1" | pbcopy -pboard find then simulate ⌘F to trigger Safari’s search.

 

Thanks for your help man. I just need a little bit of direction... where I place that code? Sorry for the stupid question
