It pops up a browser window directly from an R console command. I like the fact that I get an R help page with `findFn`. I suspect it has prevented many more questions that we never see.

None of the first page Google citations actually answered the question when I tried. Rseek was much better, but I have found it to be less focused than sos::findFn.  De gustibus non disputandem, I suppose.

For the record:  De gustibus non est disputandum
