There are 4-5 hobbyist forums I frequent. How do I search all of them at once?

I kind of answered my own question just before I posted because I found Google Custom Search
. GCS is OK, but it doesn't show key information like when each thread was posted. It also tends to list a bunch of results from the same url in a big clump. For example, the 1st url it searches takes up the first 1.5 pages, then the 2nd url takes up some more, etc.
Is there a better tool to do this? I imagine there must be a browser extension out there. What would be really great is if I could type a keyword into one search-bar, and have 5 tabs open up that are the search results page ON each site.
I have a little C + Java experience and am not averse to solutions that are a little more technical.
