Well searching through it to find some stuff is not that fast, I have
not idea on how to limit it to just the class I'm working in e.g.

And how do you do that, you use the mouse and go forth and back and
how to you find your browsers? In any other langauge I can write

function a


function b


But I can not in Squeak I have to accept generate a new template an
possible put the stuff in categories from which I never know which
methods belong to which category (a bit too pointed) etc. 

I know that people feel that Morphic is the tool chain but I'd prefer
a decent GUI builder, in which I can drag and drop my stuff. I would
appreciate something like putting my cursor on some method and type F1
and got help about that thing. Smalltalks are really nice but they are
lacking a decent editor ;-)
