The specialities of Tilda are that it does not behave like a normal window but instead it can be pulled up and down from the top of the screen with a special hotkey. Additionally Tilda is highly configurable. It is possible to configure the hotkeys for keybindings, change the appearance and many options that affect the behavior of Tilda. The screen shots below show some of the options that Tilda provides.
Tilda also comes with a search bar. Currently it supports searching forwards and backwards as well as options to search case sensitive and to use regular expressions. The search bar can be activated from the context menu or with a configurable hotkey that defaults to F
