One of the most powerful search functions I love is in NetBeans IDE. I never find it in Eclipse (by default).

My use case is to search a text under 4.5 GB files. For that I use the NetBeans IDE Favorites window.

Follow the  below steps to achieve quick search and edit in NetBeans IDE.

  1. Add the directory under Favorites, then search i.e. (Ctrl+F). Optionally you can add filters (*.java,*.html,*.js, *.json, etc.)   

  2. This search will display the results synchronously, you can stop any time
