I would like to submit multiple URLs through one project that replicate searching for different iterations of a product name or type and then evaluate the results offline. Can I set up a file outside of Offline Explorer with the different URLs (that include the search string) I want to submit and have Offline Explorer use that list in a project?

Yes, it is possible with Offline Explorer Pro edition:

http://www.metaproducts.com/download/opsetup.exe

You may use URL Macros, like:

http://www.google.com/search?q={:file=c:\search.txt}

The c:\search.txt file should include all search keywords, one per line. Please replace all space symbols with + in the file:

some+word
sport
Microsoft+Windows
