Dialog box?

I think having search in a pop-up dialog box is a really bad idea and reminds me of search in old versions of Microsoft Word. Having search inline as a tab allows for an easy workflow as you aren't blocking anything and constantly moving around a dialog box. Instasearch is inline, and would be a really good search extension if it allowed for exact matches and case sensitive searches. I'm still looking for the holy grail of search in eclipse but unfortunately I don't think it exists yet.

Very powerfull

Really helps to find text in a software. Easier and faster than existing text search (results appear in real time)
Highly recommended.
Should be part of standard distribution.

Self solved

Ctrl+Shift+L shows Quick Search
Ctrl+Shift+L twice shows list of shortcut
Ctrl+Shift+L 3 times shows Preferences > General > Keys

works great!

This should be part of the Eclipse platform, it blows the regular text search feature out of the water. Installed it both on STS and vanilla Eclipse.
