Navigation (next/prev), highlighting all matches, and case-sensitive 
matching (not sure toolbar search supports these?).  It's basically 
somewhere between the find dialog and the toolbar search field

where your attention is probably already focused, and it can be shown 
and hidden with keybindings.
