From version 3.0 it's possible to peek at the contents of image and text files. First, turn on Previews from the View menu, by clicking on the toolbar tool or using the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-P by default). Now if you hover over an image file in a fileview, after a configurable time its contents will appear. Small images will be full-size, but larger ones will be scaled down; the maximum sizes are also configurable. The preview will close when the mouse moves over a different item, or leaves the fileview.

The context of text files can also be viewed in this way. This is often less useful as only the first few lines will be visible, but it may be enough to identify the file that you were searching for.
