Searching for files is made easier with the tab-completion of the :find command introduced in Vim 7.3. It is also straightforward to set up a short function to use external commands to populate your quickfix list with a set of files which you can navigate to, and there are plenty of plugins available for fuzzy matching and other advanced features. See our Featured tip for details!
