I can't really compare yaourt and cower as I never used an aur helper
before (except aurploader for uploading).

I used to use a simple BASH script to download and extract the
tarballs containing the PKGBUILDs, etc but this was getting difficult
to manage, ie no searching or notification of new package updates.

Those are the features of cower I use the most, search and status of
packages. It works well for me.
