Is the Selector browser important?

When I need to find a method I usually reach for method names and type a phrase of portion there of. I find the method browser a very fancy, high maintence tool.

Is it the worth the effort to fix?
If it were removed who would violently complain?

Yours in curiosity, --Jerome Peace

Yes, it's important.

I use it, and tell my students to use it, when I think that a method ought o exist but have no idea what it is called. Finding substrings in strings and modulo arithmetic are a couple of examples where you know that there has to be an appropriate method, but have no way of guessing its name!

If you Squeak every day, this may not be a problem. For the occaional Squeaker, method finder is a godsend.

Method #first: is simply not referenced by MethodFinder.

Nothing magical in implementation, see MethodFinder>>#initialize
