It's looking _very_ slick. I particularly like how the results are
filtered in-place.

A few ideas for enhancements (not that you don't have enough to keep
you busy forever):

  * Guess the property names from the values. (Maybe using some kind
of text classification.)
  * Guess type of data (from the properties and text classification of
the items/page)
  * Save to piggy bank (of course).

  * Short term - I think you could make a good guess at what elements
are addresses and put up a google map. That'd have good demo-value.
