5.0 out of 5 stars Web Magnet Is Great! June 19, 2000
This is a very powerful tool for those who like to download images and sound clips. You can add more search engines to it very easily. If you don't want to spend 5 hours surfing for specific images, let Web Magnet do it for you while you do other things. If things are out there Web Magnet will get them for you automatically and in great abundance. There is a short learning curve if you want to use it to your full advantage. You must read the very nice manual that comes with it to get the most out of it. What this program does in essence is acts as a Master search engine that utilizes other search engines to do its work. You can add as many new internet search engines to it as you desire. These all work in parallel to find what you want. They will follow links to other sites. You can configure Web Magnet to go down into a website to as many layers as you desire, within reason of course. It can be configured to ignore slow sites or include them. Minimum image size can be specified. All your download stuff is saved to special folders that you create. You can set it up to use specific file types that are cogent to your search. You can add file types to its file types lists. And now for a little downside stuff. I had to rate this program with 5 stars because it is so very efficient and does what it says it will do, and is extreemly easy to use. However there are a couple of small issues that I feel you who read this should be aware of. Like any search engine you should be very specific in the search text as to what you are looking for and you might have to play around with words a little for it to find what you want. Also like most search engines it will return to you some content that you have no wish for and that has nothing in reality with what you are searching for. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Web Magnet Delivers May 6, 2000
By A Customer
Collect you gallery of images, video, sounds and more from the internet. Just hit the magnet, put in the search terms, and spider the internet many levels deep. It collects the images into a handy gallery where you can easily view, delete, and put into a slide show your results. The search can be narrowed by changing the settings; for example, only images over 100 x 100 pixels. By selecting an image the url is highlighted and you can go to that site. Couldn't be easier. This program is fun for even those among us that spend too much time online. Best for fast connections. Or for dial-ups leave it on all night and wake up to your new gallery. Enjoy!
