Description:

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




Changelog:

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

Note:
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

I'm a big fan of this feature in firefox :)

It's elegant and very usable, i hope this can be integrated more globally in KDE one day

Here you can find a small extension I made: http://danakil.free.fr/firefox/
Description : Allow you to switch the Find Bar on or off with Ctrl-F shortcut (instead of having to manually close it)

 Bur report pending

I think this is a related bug report - it is very, very sad that the konqueror developers do not react in this case.
There are more users needed to vote on this bug, and more users needed to make clear that this is a huge usability thing, and that the old solution is not very usable, userfriendly or has any advantages above this mentioned one at all.

So: comment and vote on this bug (or create a new one covering more applications, and post it here):

i don't think one should open a new bug report, maybe it's better to add comments instead

(btw, kde-apps really need a more defined category for this kind of ideas and mockup...)

It is a feature that I also miss, but firefox is not an option for me. It has some nice ideas, but I never liked it globally.

To have this into kde should not be so difficult. It is just a matter of creating a kpart and integrating it with the rest of apps. Konqueror accepts kpart, you can even embed konsole on it, so this should not be much different. I am not a kde developer, so, it would be nice if someone with the knowledge could deny or confirm this.

 konqueror

A similar feature is already available in konqueror when used as a web browser. Just press "/" (which can also be used in firefox instead of Ctrl+F) and you 'll see down on the left that it says "Starting -- find text as you type". It then works exactly as in firefox, and you can jump from one result to the other with F3.

cool... I didn't know that... a very hidden feature ;) Although, it only works when there is no active cursor in the window...

Anyway, the point is that not every application (konversation, konqueror,...) should try to implement it's own version of an instant search (or find). The goal would be to have this as a kpart available for all applications

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
