As someone who had to read the find(1) manpage earlier today, as I always
have to do every time I have to use find to do something not completely
trivial, the reason I tend to just pipe stuff to grep is that I use find
rarely enough that I can't remember any of the options, which for some
reason don't follow any standard Unix/GNU conventions, or where I've got to
add the wildcards, or what strings I have to quote to prevent wildcard

(FWIW https://github.com/sharkdp/fd is a way nicer tool for everyday use.)
