Frankenstein: a live web search
I am new to computer programming, and just have a few innocent questions to ask.
I have an idea for a piece of programming I would like to carry out, but I would appreciate some advice about what language/software I should use.
The idea: one by one, each word from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein text will be entered into a google search, and the first webpage result shall be opened. I shall exclude words such as it, a, and, I, they etc. Each space between a word will trigger a new tab for a new google search. And full stops (the end of the sentence) will close all the tabs, and will start a new line of google searches.
Does this sound achievable? If so, which programming language should I use? Please let me know if I should explain more. I'm using a macbook pro.

I don't get it.
If you clear all the tabs at each full stop, then the end result will be a blank screen when the last full stop clears all tabs.
I would think you would want to stop at the end of each sentence and give the user the ability to clear the tabs and start the next sentence.
Maybe you need to better describe what you are really after.
An optimist sees the glass as half full.
A pessimist sees the glass as half empty.
A realist drinks it no matter how much there is.
