Here is a research tool that might be of interest, I have used it for many years. It is called Copernic and is a search tool that is a desktop appliance, which can search many engines at once. http://www.copernic.com/en/products/ There is a free home version that can be downloaded, which is fine for most people.
Sandra, I've been looking for a tool like this for ages where you could save searches. I never get the same results twice when I go back to look for something again and it's always the one site I really wanted to revisit that I can't find. I'm really bad at not bookmarking at the critical time. That's fantastic you shared it. Thank you.

This is even better than that Kay, it can save your selected searches, or the sites you want to save. Makes it really save time looking for sites and information.
