Ag: Very fast grep replacement

Ag (aka "the silver searcher") is a very fast replacement for grep.

It will parse your .gitignore for additional speedup. To ignore even more files (node_modules, *.min.js etc), add an .agignore with syntax identical to .gitignore.

On Ubuntu 14.04, don't install via apt-get, but build from source to get a current version.

See Faster Grepping in Vim for hints about vim integration.
