One thing i would love to see that is easy is "fast find": the user
types a start code, and then each character they type is added to the
find string which occurs live...
In other words, I hit cmd-I (for incremental search),then "e" and the
e in One would be highlighted. add "a", and the search moves to
"easy", add "p" and i get a beep and the search stays where it is
(not found in buffer). backspace, i am searching for "ea" again.
Click or cmd-I again exits the search.
This is amazingly valuable many times a day.
Firefox has it, as does Safari via the lovely AcidSearch plug-in (if
you don't have it, grab it!)

partial regexes are easily illegal or you can accidentally enter
something that will take exponential time until you add the final
'?' or similar.
