|Some commands like :substitute and :global are extremely powerfull, but with that great power comes a lot of trouble. The dealing with regular expressions, with search of complete words or free text, the case-sensitiveness, magicness, line ranges that we can't visualize and most importantly, the fact that these commands can't be applied as if they were operators are just some of the points that make these Ex commands so awkward to use in the common workflow.
In response of all that concerns comes EXtend.vim, that provides the functionality of those venerable Ex commands packed into easy to use operators, a highlight system that provides visual feedback by shows the range of operation and the text to be operated in the fly and an steroids-provided input line with two virtual cursors: one for editing the text you type as in any other input line, and a second one that moves over the text of the buffer and lets you pick up words from it and insert them on the input line.
Take all that and add the ability to customize every color, keystroke and mapping to your own needs and you got a tool that can easily merge into your vim workflow and make your life much easier.
