displays nice search results that you can easily jump to.
You install the plugin, then, when you want to search for something, you
There's a bazillion different commands you can use. Give it a try.
Regarding your "open in different windows" question, you can place the
cursor on a search result, then
press gF (I think) and it will open in a new window. See :help gf for ways

One thing I would note is that on a Mac, I have these settings:
" Tell Rgrep not to use Xargs on Mac OS 'cause it sucks.
" Previously used has("mac"), except this doesn't work in
" a terminal, and fubars the grep.vim plugin
let s:os = system("uname")
if s:os =~ "Darwin"
