    Google Calculator

    Once I get the critical service updates taken care of, the first thing I load on a new install is the Google Toolbar. Can't live without it. Just found this Google Adds a Calculator, which makes the Google toolbar even more indispensable. (You can get the Google Toolbar at, of course http://www.google.com / Service and Tools.

    So you can now google your way through middle school, high school, and maybe college math.

    Re: Google Calculator

    Good to know it exists. Seems good for general purpose use.

    Still I believe I'll keep using:
    - Calc.exe (Window's standard calc) for simple calculations
    - Excel for complex calculations
    - Babylon (old version) for simple conversions. It boasts a zillion and a half categories including currencies, general measurements, and time.

    But I do like the way the Google Calculator handles conversions, so... informally. It's a good thing to know it's there in case sb else's computer happens not to be running Babylon. Thanks for letting us know! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Don't forget TapeCalc from Ziff Davis Media, it also does lots of conversions, it's free, and I like having a tape of all the calculations I've done
