When you work on a project, you need to navigate around the source code frequently. NetBeans IDE provides many navigation features that are highly useful since 6.5 but there were additional improvements and fixes in 6.7 that are worth of mentioning.
Go to File (Alt+Shift-O)
Much faster now, type file name and you will be pleasantly surprised how fast it is, its the difference especially on huge projects.
Go to Type (Ctrl-O)
Camel cases can be used now. You can try any of following patterns :
if you wish to find MyDatabaseResult class/interface.

Quickly search for action or type is now easy.
Go to Symbol (Ctrl+Alt+Shift-O)
Powerful - finds functions, methods, fields, constants, types. Just type its plane name or camel case patterns.
