WebNavigator helps creating search agents to retrieve dynamic data from the Web.

An awful lot of websites let users search their data using web interface. Usually these contents are not accessible via search engines such as Google.

WebNavigator allows to:
  • define sites to be searched
  • choose the search criteria
  • define the result area inside the page
  • choose conditions to classify the results (no results? no new results? something new)
  • receive notification for update

At this stage WebNavigator is nothing more than an idea and a demo, we need you!
