Not really! There is a way.

Afther the search ...

Goto Query manager page.
Select the query 
Click  the 'save' buttion

You get the Download query page.

   select the 'use view' as complete entry
   select the chunk size
   choose the 'use mime type' to binary so that you can type a file name
   to save the result.

Click the Save button!

You are done!

Yes, There can be a 'save all' button on the query result page!
