Ctrl+F on Windows/Linux or +F on a Mac.

or just go to the menu "Find" and use the option almost at the bottom called "Find in Files".

To search in all open files, add this to the Where textbox:

<open files>

If you want to search in folders and such, please just look at the right of the textbox and see there's a button .... Click on it and it will show you options.

Maybe I didn't express quite well. The thing is that I just want to search inside my open tabs (and nothing more). Is that possible? Maybe with a special character inside "Find in Files" dialog? – Santiago Agüero Oct 4 '12 at 17:35
I will edit answer right away. The answer is "yes" – Mamsaac Oct 4 '12 at 17:38
Yep, you're right! I should've read a little bit more of Sublime Documentation. Thanks @Mamsaac ! – Santiago Agüero Oct 4 '12 at 17:49
