Files filter should not be fuzzy


It looks like the Files tab is using a fuzzy match algo that allows n characters between matches:

This ends up being basically useless for a very common task (filter files by extension) in any project with a considerable amount of files.

I’d prefer this to just be a regex or at least have fuzzy be an option. Especially when staging large numbers of files, I feel like exact string matches are going to be far more frequently looked for than fuzzy ones.

There’s a similar thread here, but no one had replied.
