Metagoofil - Metadata Extractor Update

Hi all, long time from the last post. This time is a short post about a new updated version of the Metagoofil

The problem was that Google changed the source code of the results page, so the parser failed to catch the files. I guess that the structure of the HTML is changed often, to render useless the tools that use google in an automated way outside the API (all the tools right now).

Recently Roelof talked about the problems he had in Maltego using google as an input and core part of a tool, i want to confirm what he said, it's really a mess to maintain a tool that uses google as input :(

Enough for today.

Thanks to Chris Gates for pointing out the problem.
