Best Link Popularity tools

Here is the list of link popularity tools, I found most convinient to use. Its quite elaborate to run between 3 search engines, type in "link:" queries and count the results. Instead, You can use 1 service what automates queries from different pages. 

My requirement is, that it should give popularity for Google, Yahoo and optionally MSN/Live.

My 2 top Picks:

+ precise results 
+ some history records
- poor benchmarking capabilities

+ 3 website benchmarking
+ history
- dont believe MBL, its just MIP (indexed pages, not backlinks)
