14.2 > Network > googler (4.0)

googler is a power tool to Google (Web & News) and Google Site Search from the
command-line. It shows the title, URL and abstract for each result, which can
be directly opened in a browser from the terminal. Results are fetched in
pages (with page navigation). Supports sequential searches in a single googler

googler was initially written to cater to headless servers without X. You can
integrate it with a text-based browser. However, it has grown into a very
handy and flexible utility that delivers much more. For example, fetch any
number of results or start anywhere, limit search by any duration, define
aliases to google search any number of websites, switch domains easily... all
of this in a very clean interface without ads or stray URLs. The shell
completion scripts make sure you don't need to remember any options.

googler isn't affiliated to Google in any way.
