If you want to save the list on your local computer, the command is Find-Package | Export-CliXML E:\Packages.xml

is your chosen path and name of the exported list (it will be an XML file).
This XML file can be opened for instance in Excel, or be opened as grid view list in PowerShell with Import-CliXML E:\Packages.xml | Out-GridView
Online at Chocolatey Gallery | Packages
Notice that both methods 1 and 2 above can be used to install software directly from the list simply by adding the
-Passthru switch to Out-GridView cmdlet and piping it to Install-Package cmdlet:
Simply use CTRL key to select multiple packages, click OK when ready to install selected.
You can also use grid view to list all versions of selected few apps, select your preferred version for each app and install them. In screenshot for instance finding all versions of Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers and selecting my preferred version of each of them to be installed:
