Screenshot 1: new proposal
Screenshot 2: highlighting changes

There is a wishlist entry (feature request) at http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93439
So if you care, vote for it!

One thing I really love in Firefox is the instant search. I really miss that in KDE programs (Konqueror, Konsole, Kwrite, Kmail, ...).
I whish the current Find (or KFind??) component would be enhanced to this functionality. It would speed up work quite a bit.

I think you all know how the Find-tool works in Firefox, nevertheless I'll describe the implementation here:
- Pressing CTRL-F the first time brings up the find-toolbar above the status bar
- the cursor is automatically placed in the find-input-area, so you can start typing right away
- after some letters (2 or 3) the instant search already shows the first match in the content window
- the matching text is highlighted
- you can use the "find forward" and "find backward" buttons to jump to more results


version 0.2:
-added the "highlight all occurences" option checkbox to the mockup screenshots
-renamed this entry to fit the name of the whishlist entry at http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93439

probably not many people know (thanks to dresnu):
-konqueror provides part of this feature by just typing in "/" (normal slash)
-this works only when there is no active cursor in the window (e.g. in a textbox, text input field, ...)
-Example: /konqueror finds all occurrences of "konqueror" in the current page, F3 can be used to cycle (forward only) through the results

 vi(m) keybindings

I like the idea of a more compact and usable find mechanism.

"-konqueror provides part of this feature by just typing in "/" (normal slash)"

Thats quite likely taken from vi keybindings ("j" and "k" for scrolling also work). Since I am quite used to the vi shortcuts - are there any plans to make this configureable? Or is it already? It would be nice to be able to use "/" as search initiator, "n" to move to the next hit and "N" to move to the former hit. That would make it possible to search without the fingers having to leave their place on the keyboard or groping around the F keys. Possible?

 more options

 by ZeroCarontE on: Jul 24 2007

it feels strange having the old search dialog just for options like regular expression or search in selected text..

i propose the search panel to be extended, instead of being "replaced" by the old dialog


but maybe search "from cursor" doesnt make much sense if you are "searching while typing"

and maybe regular expression search could disable "search while typing" if it gets too slow

or maybe there could be a check box for "search while typing"

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
