I am working as a wordpress developer since 6 month and i faced an issue that is content related.
if User want to find any word ,that is possible using browser default find function. but sometime user want to need replace , that facility is not available in wordpress (post/Page) Editor.
So,That should be part of wordpress.
I hope that you like my Idea.

Thanks for the feedback.

This could be enabled by adding the searchreplace plugin to tinymce, its possible this has been left out to keep the interface streamlined. you might be able to add this via a plugin, although i agree its worth considering for core.

I think this is a more advanced tool and not needed by the average writer. Just enabling that plugin also won't work for the text editor. I think this is plugin territory. There are definitely plugins out there that add the TinyMCE search replace plugin.
