We have designed and implemented a Goal-oriented Web application to search videos, images, and news by querying YouTube, Truveo, Google and Yahoo search services. The Planner module decomposes functionality in Goals and Techniques. Goals declare searches for specific types of content and Techniques query the various Web services. We choose which Web service has the best rating at runtime and return the winning results. Users weight their preferred Web services and declare a repository of their own Techniques to upload and execute.
