Many know about that you can open a file based on what’s under your cursor using gf, or C-w f. There is also a handy variation on this using ‘F’.

With your cursor sitting anywhere on the line containing the file name, use gF. You’ll be transported to product.rb, line 35. Saving steps is saving time.
