There *is* an Emacs mode for putting files into a group/list and then operate
on the whole list of files - but unfortunately I don't remember its name
anymore. It seemed quite powerful (and works with icicles etc).

And then there are
[[http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/OccurMode#IciclesOccur][multi-occur]]
and 'M-x find-grep' that both offer a second result window allowing to
scroll through the search results in several buffers.
