GNU grep can be colorful

Yet another of those tiny things that I wish I discovered a billion years ago – GNU grep supports color.  Yup, that’s right.  You can actually have your matches nicely highlighted in the results.  All you have to do to use this beauty is run grep --color instead of just grep. (Hint: an alias might be in order.)
