In component mode selecting similar vertices, edges and faces of a similar type to the current selection can be multiple steps and time-consuming.
Maya offers select similar, this tool selects the active component of similar type to the current selection, drastically reducing the number of steps.
This is commonly used when working on non-organic objects that have many similar face angles and areas.
Select Similar is located in Select > Similar
