Wolfram Alpha search engine: AskYourAmiga 0.6 (update)
AskYourAmiga or AYA is a program for accessing the Wolfram Alpha answer engine (Wikipedia). It doesn't provide links to web pages, but answers to search queries directly - which can be processed graphically (e.g. as a curve).

Version 0.5 offers so-called "assumptions" - it is now possible to separate identical search terms. For example, a search for "Berlin" will distinguish between the cities with this name, the band name and the first name or family name.

Update: (20:05, 17.04.21, dr)
Marcus Sackrow has released version 0.6 which fixes a little bug, especially on AROS, that images prevent from loading properly. (cg) (Translation: (bb)

Sachs ( Defender of the Crown, CDTV among others) and Rainer Benda from Commodore Germany.
