Make find option similar to find as we know it from web browsers

I keep hitting the scroll wheel on my mouse after doing a search in RDi and to my big frustration the scroll wheel affects find history instead of the source. There is also the part where you search for something in the Source and you want to highlight all occurrences of that Word in the Source. The easiest way to describe this is to make an option for making the find similar to what you find in Chrome / IE / Firefox etc.

Use Case:

Want to be able to search for a text string in RDi and get all occurrences highlighted (without collapsing the code) and make the scroll Wheel affect the code instead of the search box.
