I liked Beautiful Soup a lot too when I used it couple of months back. Also,
Mechanize is a super cool library for filling and submitting the forms of
any page. One can write a meta search engine by just using these two
libraries in Python.

Also, PyAmazon(by Mark Pilgrim, author of Dive into Python) is a good Python
module for accessing the Amazon services. It has a neat interface covering
almost all the free services provided by Amazon.

Djaptcha seems to be a cool Django capthca(I am yet to use it), which can be
used with the Django projects with the forms to avoid spamming bots.

Thanks and regards,
Bharath Keshav
