Not to mention instant find-next (In vim, hit "*" while cursor is on
top of a word, and it will highlight it and search for the next
occurrence of it. Pretty handy while jumping functions. :) (And hit
"#" to go to the previous occurrence.)

Relatedly, "gD" = goto-declaration, which jumps to wherever a function
or variable is declared/first mentioned.

Those are for vim (which I both use and like, but the "modes" thing
surely takes some time getting used to), but I'm sure *emacs and other
IDEs have similar shortcuts.

Anyway, hardly something a pager will do without objection. ;)
