This is actually an absolutely awful idea. Every time I used the code browsing and search features I was disappointed by how poorly the search is working. Lots of false positives. Usually fail to find what I'm looking for. When I git clone something and use my text editor's search feature I usually find what I'm looking for on my first try.

It's not perfect, but for a lot of smaller projects it's fine.

Also way easier to send someone a web link to something in a discussion to have them look into it, especially if it's in a different branch then they may have.
