I find the searching tools in Self to be pretty good. You can search
for any text for example. In a shell enter some text (say, 'lobby'),
double click it to highlight it, then middle click the highlighted
selection to bring up a menu. Choose 'methods containing' from there
and you'll get a list of all methods that contain this text. You can
browse as needed. Choose 'find slot' instead of 'methods containing'
to find slots with that name.

You can middle click on a slot name and choose 'senders' to find all
methods that use it. You can choose 'implementers' to find all methods
that implement it.

Once you get used to it you'll find it very flexible. you do end up
with a lot of outliners open though!
