Yes, but I don’t want to loose and restore my search string each and every
time when switching to another program just to look up something.

TM also has a history of replacement strings but those are not connected.
AlphaX (and AlphaCocoa, being its next iteration) has that connection and
is even able to save pairs of find/replace strings permanently. This would
prove very useful in TM, too.

Obviously, AlphaX doesn’t use the Find Pasteboard at all.
