Notes

WebFerret is a small program that will go out and search muliple websites for you. I've been using it a long time and I was recently asked to compare it to Copernic Agent. Both of them have free versions and many of the same free features. Copernic Agent is a much larger program and has more features than WebFerret but I don't even use all the features WebFerret has. The only thing I don't like about WebFerret is that it pops up a NAG screen before each use. They want you to buy the PRO version. No thanks, I like the free version just fine.
