GridSearch - Specialized Google search for finding lists

Suppose you have a list of things you're interested in, and you want to find similar lists on the web. If you put the whole list into a Google search (like "roboform snagit jedit directory-opus autohotkey araxis"), you probably won't get any results back.

But if you conducted several searches in parallel (like "roboform snagit jedit", "jedit autohotkey roboform", "araxis directory-opus snagit", and all other 3-word combinations), you'll get back several webpages containing similar lists.

That's exactly what GridSearch does. Try it below.
