DEVONagent 3.11 and DEVONsphere 1.9.2 for macOS Mojave

DEVONagent Search Sets

Search sets are part of what makes DEVONagent so powerful for serious research.

If you have ever rabbit-trailed while reading a web page and found yourself far from where you started, consider this before choosing the Web (Deepest) option. Here’s...
