There's still one feature that you don't have whose absence baffles me, which is a "search within the results on this page" feature.
For example, if I do a search on epi in Thayer, I get a screen or two of results. Some of the results have a semantic significance (e.g., the scripture refs) but many do not, like "Alexander Buttmann" (whoever he is/was) because they're just plain text. You have a feature to add fields (with tools at least) so you can search for the former kind of tagged data, but not for random text. (Suppose Mr. Buttmann was listed in three places in this entry and I wanted to skip from one to the next. This is particularly relevant with the longer entries in some of the tools, or when there are many results.) (Another example: I do a search in the Greek text but I have a parallel NRSV pane that I want to skip through without doing some funky NRSV-search linked to the results of an existing NA27 search. I know--well, I assume--I can do that, but I want something super-interactive.)
Essentially, what you have now is a great search engine for finding things, like Google. What I would like to supplement it is a "help my eyes see what is in front of me" feature like Edit+Find in a web browser. In fact, I would recommend a user interface just like Firefox, where I hit Cmd+F or / and get a little mini-search window at the bottom of the pane. I type a letter and an incremental search takes place as I continue to type. Then when I'm done I can dismiss that sub-pane or keep it.
Here is an example:
In the example, the page from the Accordance website is analogous to the results of a search using all the cool Accordance features. Now I just want to find things in it other than my search parameters.
