Salesforce advanced Code searcher

There are 2 main tools when you add this Google Chrome extensions. Go to Salesforce setup page to find them:

1) Advanced Quick Find 
This part gets added in side navigation bar on all set-up pages. Select the code component that you want to go to, then start typing the name of the code,an autocomplete suggestion pops up, select the one that you want to go to.



2) Developer Utilities
2.1) Search Your Code - this will include search in: Class, Page, Trigger and VF component.
This component get added in force.com home page only. Let's say you want to know where you want to know where is an object used your code, like proj__c. Right now to find this out you have to either go thru all the code individually or create a force.com project in eclipse and then search there. There's no way we can do this directly in Salesforce. This string search will help you do that. You have to check the code components in which you want to search the code, enter a string in the input text field and hit enter. You will be presented with a list of code components where the string is used.



2.2 ) Code Coverage Extract: View and download the code coverage in your org.
