Eclipse: How to open the implementation method, not the interface declaration!!!

If you use the f3 key or ctrl+click over a class/method in eclipse, it opens the corresponding class/method.
However, it is very annoying when you click on a method but it opens the interface declaration, when what you really want to open is its implementation (to see how it is implemented, not to see how it's declared).
Doing that I have to press f4 to view the hierarchy and choose my *impl.java class.
so, is there any option to find-> method implementation?

Doesn't seem to work with the current 3.0 stream, though.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
