mrguy123 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,
I am working on a tool that fetches results from different search engines and parses the results for display.
In the past I have mostly worked with the LWP::UserAgent module, and would like to also try some different modules as well.
I have heard good things about WWW:Mechanize and would like to hear any other recommendations or advice about similar modules that do a good job
Any suggestions?
