It depends on what you're searching for. For files I'm unsure of, I'll press tab and let fuzzy finder do the work.

// Not very sure of file name but knowing the extension
:e **/MyUnsureFi*.vue

// Knowing which directory
:e app/controllers/**/my_controll
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you scope down the directory, search will be faster. No plugins required. Asterisk only when necessary, scope down when you know the directory. Fast enough for me at least.
