I am looking for a webapp that would gather data from the web in a very similar way to a search engine, but instead of presenting the results as a list of titles and abstracts, it would dump the results into a table, attempting to extract metadata from the pages it had in its internal indexes.
(Once upon a time Google had a web-app called Google Squared. Is there any other tool like that today? I remember this as being super useful, and amazingly intuitive - although not perfect, it was an awesome tool for non-programmers to quickly create rather complex queries and have rendered almost immediately with very little effort.)
UPDATE: Here is the demo of Google Squared from 13 years ago.
According to the Wikipedia article it was created in response to Wolfram-Alpha, but WA is limited in scope by design (or I don't know/have access to other features).
This is the pertinent description from the Wikipedia page: Google Squared extracted structured data from across the web and presented its results in spreadsheet-like format. Each search query returned a table of search results which has its own set of columns - common attributes that are associated with the topic of a search.
