    Anybody noticed that google will do maths for you now? try typing 70-217 in a search box or square root of 16. Saves launching calc if you have the google toolbar, a few more seconds saved :)

    Do you still get the classic two buttons:

    "Google Calc"

    and

    "I'm feeling lucky"

    :?: :lol:

    You still get the classic search page, it just gives you the result at the op of the returns page if you type in a calculation. Following the calculator help I also found you can do a dictionary lookup of words if you type define: before the phrase you want to know about, i think that could be even more useful. I love Google :D
