DEVONtechnologies has updated DEVONagent to provide support for Panther, and to add features.
DEVONagent 1.1 is an intelligent search agent, and offers an alternative method for researching information on the Internet. The software is designed to mimic the way a human user would search the Web, allowing it to be used as an automated research tool. The software collects search results from a variety of Web sites then downloads files and evaluates their usefulness. Results are displayed either in a standard list sorted by relevance, or in a digest view with the most relevant sites highlighted.
New in this version are “sets,” which allow users to switch between various configurations with a single click. Also new to version 1.1 is a plug-in manager and a tool for setting search preferences.
The software is available for $35 at the company’s Web site, and is also available in a $60 bundle with DEVONthink Personal Edition.
