I actually have a plugin I've been working on that does exactly that. 
It's a really simplified search bar that pops-up under the editor window 
and it's basically a clone of Firefox's find bar.  The only difference 
is that it has an "Advanced" button that opens the normal find dialog 
which has way more options.

I can't see something like this ever replacing the normal find dialog 
since the find dialog is so much more powerful, but it could possibly 
replace the find thing in the toolbar.

At some point in the near future I'll push the plugin's code to a Github
