Quickly Open Files in Eclipse 4

FastOpen is the fastest way to open, or navigate to, files in Eclipse 4.

Just press ctrl+r to show the FastOpen window and press Enter to open, or navigate to, selected files. Since FastOpen ranks files based on most recent access, you can use it to focus already open files very quickly. Or if you accidently close a file, just press ctrl+r then press Enter to reopen it.
