Just my 2 cents, but I like the way the cursor warps to point to where a
item is found, makes locating it so much easier - however, it is
difficult having to go and click next each time. Why not use a hotkey
such as F3 to perform the same task as clicking next while the find
dialog is open? (I chose F3 as it is used in some programs as "find
next")... or something along these lines?
