(I've come across many undocumented things while browsing through the source. I though it might eventually turn out to be useful to write those down somewhere, so here we go...)

Did you know you can use regular expressions when using the toolbar search box? You just have to prefix your seach term with "re:" - For example, you can put in "re:Ro.y" to match both "Romy" and "Roxy".

NB: The "Global Search" dialog does not support this, it's a toolbar search exclusive.
