DevonAgent Express debuts at Mac App Store

updated 11:00 pm EDT, Wed May 25, 2011

Robust web search client in your menu bar

DevonTechnologies has brought DevonAgent Express, a new menubar utility, to the Mac App Store. The program, which draws on the menubar elements of the forthcoming DevonAgent 3, offers users an affordable tool that provides not only menubar searching of the web using a number of standard search engines, but also easy access to a number of specialist resources such as medical or legal dictionaries, blogs, image or video sites, forums and social networking sites, patent libraries and many other specialist search options.

Results can be set to be filtered and re-ranked by the program, and presented with previews to help quickly narrow down the right result. Longer text summaries can optionally be shown either via pop-over or in the menu. The app also works in "express" mode, where the results from the search engines is presented unfiltered. By giving users a Spotlight-like search tool for the web that has access to more than 80 general-purpose and specialty search engines, customers can find the results they desire no matter where the answer is located.

Results from searches can be opened in the default web browser, or DevonAgent if the user wishes. Results can also be dragged to documents, or the Finder, or a favorite bookmark manager.

The program costs $5 and is exclusively available via the Mac App Store, meaning it requires 10.6.6 or higher.
