The idea comes from me having a lengthy list of movie titles and I’d like to search for them as a batch on a site like instantwatcher.com or netflix, or IMDB. It seems to me, perhaps incorrectly, that there might be a way to create a script or bookmarklet or something to automate the search and collect data on which searches got a hit?
It would be kinda cool to find a list on say “20 things you must have when camping” and then search Amazon for each item all at once, maybe with results opening in tabs or something.
Am I just imagining that this sort of thing can be done? It seems like something that someone with the right know how could make work. I don’t really know where I’d start searching for how to do it either.
