The code that we created here is more or less the brainchild of laziness and yearning to have faster control over a web browser environment. Using our web app, one can quickly perform multiple tasks relating to their input; examples are defining a word, opening a website, etc. (many more features to be added in further renditions) One of the more complex tasks D.A.R.W.I.N. is capable of is allowing the user to search for relevant articles on the internet, then pull a how many ever of these articles they want and display them as separate tabs/windows within the browser.
 We'd like to say that our main inspiration was the popular voice assistant for Apple's iPhone, Siri. Using the ideology that one could easily open up an app and give it simple commands, then have the device execute otherwise tedious processes seemed like a blessing for us. We had two rather different main targets in mind when developing this app, and they were: 1) A person who wasn't willing to grind through the otherwise tedious tasks of searching the internet, opening new pages and such, and 2) Budding "superusers" who want to slice through computer UI like butter and use the computer to their full advantage, taking control of the features provided in our app to increase the speed and productivity of their worktime. In a way, however, these two groups of people are the same. They both want to spend less time "navigating" and more time "doing". In other words, people like this are the future of the internet and the world as a whole. D.A.R.W.I.N.'s goal is to take the people of tomorrow to tomorrow itself. "They say that people pay a lot for convenience ... D.A.R.W.I.N. is convenience."
