Two things I discovered about searching:
* will search forward for the word under the cursor. No longer do I have to type /WordUnderTheCursor.
# does the same thing, but goes backwards. It’s like ?WordUnderTheCursor.
g* will search for any word containing the word under the cursor. So g* on the word count will find count, GetCount, Counter, etc.
g# is the same thing in reverse.
