I used Outwit for two projects, but I'm not sure that what I did would be of much use to you. I was looking for specific terms. with related results and related images. I just used the built in capabilities to download what I wanted automatically. I sifted the final results manually.

These may help you;

Thanks, I will try those ideas and get back to you.

Basically, my issue is that I need to download results for research and sort through them in ways that Google and Bing don't give me options to handle.

Let's use this as one example:

I'll buy you a cup of coffee (Starbucks gift card for the best qualifying answer) if someone can tell me the complete history of the "Chicken and the Pig" story, how far back it dates and how it was told (variants) before it was used in the Agile community.

As far I know, this is an Aesop's Fable, but the oldest news story I could find that referenced it was Bishop Muzorewa using the parable to describe the political situation in Rhodesia in 1977.

Along the way, you may learn some things about search that I am struggling with. Please post.
