script type
When you focus on a new word, all other occurrences of the word are lit up in red.

If you move again but remain on the same word, the highlight is removed.  So e.g. I just hit Space when I want to undo the highlighting.

Drop in plugin/

If you want to also highlight words which *contain* the current word, without being an exact match:

:let g:hiword_partial = 1
