I use HideShow constantly. It allows you to quickly collapse an entire buffer down to just the first line of each block.


Occur is also really helpful. You can type M-x occur and then type in a regular expression and it will open a new buffer with all the lines that match that regex. And if you click on any of those lines, it will take you to its location in the original buffer.
