It highlights all occurrences of the selected word in the visible text.Processing complexity is O(n+m) time and space  (the KMP algorithm isused to achieve this.)     I estimated it should introduce littlelatency when processing is triggered ( < 200 milliseconds).      Worksvery well (I use it daily, and have seen no slow down).

I think that it differs from mark all instances in the following way.I guess that mark all instances searches the whole file which may behuge.   The plugin only searches the text that you see in the scintillawidget.     When you scroll, for example, the plugin is triggered andagain searches in the visible text for all occurrences of selected word,if any.     So you don't have to wait when you edit or read text withGeany.

You may use the plugin when you read some code:  click on some variable,and then you see all places where it is used, or click on return and yousee all places where return statement is used in some function.

You may also use the plugin to select any kind of text from any hugetext file.    For example, you may be reading this file 
http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/8117/pg8117.txt   (well, a localcopy of if) and then you may see all visible occurrences of some word.

What does this plugin do exactly? Addons can already mark all instances 
of the selected word (same as ctrl+shift+m if a word already selected).
