I never realized it existed. However, now that it is pointed out, even
the original version is rather obvious. Red text should ring a bell.

A more todays approach would be to allow the searching without any
focus tricks. Just start typing while the exif info window is in
focus. Just like e.g. when Ubuntu's file damager - whatever you start
to type is used to search.

I am not fore or against, rather vise versa (as one of our politician
said a couple of years back).
