I checked Pages, Numbers, TextMate, TextWrangler, TextEdit, Mail, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Evernote, and OmniFocus, and the only one that toggled on CMD-F is Numbers. All of the others open a find dialog with CMD-F and it is dismissed with ESC. That behavior seems pretty common (approaching standard?), at least on a Mac (I can't speak for the other platforms).

While the toggle part is true (use escape instead of a repeated command-f), many (all?) of those programs also have a button to close the find panel.

Safari has a 'done' button.
Pages a standard window close red button.
Numbers a handle to drag the panel closed.
BBEdit (and so I assume TextWrangler, too) a standard window close red button.

Maybe a system-wide option for close buttons, as suggested here, would work to eliminate interface chrome for those who don't like it while leaving an option for those who do.

That's a good point, Bob. I was focusing on whether the dialog could be toggled or dismissed with ESC and didn't even think about a button.

For what it's worth, in Safari, Shift+Cmd+F hides the search panel, which I like as a mapping.
