A Better Way to Search on GitHub

Let’s be real, searching on GitHub sucks big time. Or at least it did, until they built in a shortcut to launch Visual Studio Code in your browser.

That’s right. Next time you’re browsing a repository on GitHub and want to search for something, load up VS Code by clicking on the . (dot) button. As soon as it loads, you’ll be able to search the code as if you had loaded it locally.

If you’re asking yourself whether this is overkill, well, it is. But it’s faster than cloning the repository and searching locally.
