So, we are in the middle of a building project and I am currently doing the most indepth searching I have ever done. Hundreds - if not thousands - of searches per week, looking for products and services. The search engines are failing me. I spend more time trying to push the search engines out of the way than finding stuff.

I most often search in groups of searches. So I need utils that work over an entire search session involving dozens of searches.

I want a search service that:

A) Remembers my queries.
- It can automatically remove those URL's that I have seen from the current SERP's
- Filter out sites I flag or rate as seen, don't show, ok, marginal, appropriate, in-approprite, offensive...etc

B) Open each result in a a new browser tab or SERP Free searching.
- I want to ignore the spam filled SERP's entirely - they are a 100% annoyance anymore.
- I don't want to see snippets - they are of no value. zero - nada - waste of screen space - visual noise.
- For that matter - lets skip the serp entirely and just open tabs with your results. (I want a modern I'm Feeling Lucky, in Ten tabs) - I search, and 10-20 tabs open with the results. I'm tired of clicking.

C) I want to select a "search engine mode" to trigger:
- 'commercial mode', I'm searching for products, so give me adds and shopping sites.
- 'research mode', looking for info, so please don't localize the results, and make it dot EDU top heavy.
- 'fun mode', not sure what I want, so give me a mix to pass the time and address general boredom.
- 'group mode', looking for general info on the subjects, so give me broad big sites in the category. eg: Give me bleacherreport.com and not NFL.com or Broncos.com
- 'big sites suck mode', eliminate any site listed in a 'top 1000 traffic' list.

Any programs, services, or utils out there like that?
