QuickSearch in NetBeans

It's amazing what you can learn while doing the wrong thing. I was working on my project today in NetBeans 4.1. I \*thought\* my edit window had the focus, so I started typing. Lo and behold, I see this small 'Quick Search' window popup in my Projects window (the window which really had the focus). Intrigued, I entered a filename and hit the 'Enter' key. NetBeans did a search in the Projects window and took me to the file. Cool! I don't know all of the windows in which this works, but it works in the Favorites, Projects, Versioning, Runtime, and Navigator windows.

Try arrow keys when you type a start of name - it should cycle through all matching nodes. Cool, isn't it. And even cooler is that this feature is patch from non-netbeans internall developer ;)
I almost forgot - the QuickSearch works in all TreeViews - try it in Properties window, in Update Wizard, in Options, etc... wow :)
