DEVONagent Pro 3.9.6 – Maximize Web-search efficiency.
Size: 28.97 MB
DEVONagent Pro helps you search more efficiently on the web. It searches multiple sources, frees you from hunting for the really relevant results, and gives you power tools for your research.
Your personal meta search engine – DEVONagent Pro is not a simple Google interface. It knows how to talk to search engines, and how to squeeze the best out of them.DEVONagent connects to as many search engines as you want, collects the data, and weeds out the junk that managed to slip through. It also scans your favorite websites and notifies you when it finds something that matches your query. It can even do all of this while you’re sleeping; the results will be ready before you pour your first cup of coffee.
Get the good stuff, skip the junk – DEVONagent Pro is all about filtering what you don’t want and giving you the best tools to find more of what you really want. DEVONagent Pro doesn’t simply trust the search engines. It filters all returned results again, allowing you to use advanced Boolean operators, proximity operators, and wildcards of unlimited complexity, something no single search engine allows you to do. DEVONagent’s “scanners” can even find thumbnail galleries or linked PDF or Office documents for you. When you’ve found what you’re looking but want a little more detail, the unique See Also list contains related pages from elsewhere in the search results, online and even from DEVONthink Pro.
The information you want, the way you want – Every research tasks is different. DEVONagent Pro supports this with many ways to list, read, even explore your data. View the results as a list or as a smart text summary, and explore them with the topics map. Unread results are marked with a blue dot, just like in Apple Mail, so that you don’t miss the one important piece of information you’re looking for. Finally, for viewing Web pages there’s DEVONagent Pro’s specialized Web browser. Extract images, RSS feeds, links, email addresses, even linked documents with a single click and save them for reference or reuse.
Save your research and come back later – Research is not only about finding, it’s about collecting data, sharing it, and using it to create something meaningful. DEVONagent Pro exports your filtered and trimmed-to-the-max research results in a variety of formats, from a simple list of bookmarks to comprehensive RTF digests and PDF reports. The built-in, searchable archive keeps them for later reference, or you can send your results to DEVONthink. Finally, you can save your search and continue later on, or even share it with others via email.
