+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
+instance.
+
+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.
