FYI, towards the end of 2015 the javadoc team implemented an interesting 
new feature: a javadoc search box (JEP 225: Javadoc Search).

If you look at the current JDK 9 javadoc

in the upper right corner of the main panel there now a search box. As 
an example, if you type "math" into the search box, this will look over 
the packages (java.math), types (java.langMath, java.math.BigDecimal, 
...), and methods where "math" appears.
