There's this really great feature in Firefox, where you can search all the open tabs by typing % and then typing what open tab you are searching for.

Is it possible to do something similar to this with all the open gvim windows?

    Not clear. Do you want to search all gvim windows (like separate instances of gvim)? Or buffers opened in all separate gvims? Or just buffers in a single instance of gvim? Or window splits in gvim? Or ....

    AFAIK there is no way to coordinate between multiple instances of gvim, short of custom programs/plugins/etc. all reading/writing the same file. OTOH, getbufinfo()->filter({_, v -> !v.hidden}) will give you all the buffers currently not hidden.
