Our customer recently upgraded from CRM 2011 to CRM 2013 and one of the very first concerns that the customer faced is they were missing advanced find from the record view. Every time they wanted to open advanced find, they had to go back to the Grid View of the records and open advanced find.
A little bit of searching and came across the below wonderful post. Can stop myself from sharing this.
I am sure you would definitely be benefitted by this tool.
Hope this helps!
