XMLHTTP experience

Anybody got experience in using the XMLhttp object?

I'm looking to use it to extract data from certain web pages so that I can
create a localised search engine, ala fusionbot.com.

Any assistance you can give would be appreciated.

Piece of cake:

(Though a server-side process is far more reliable and a better solution).
