If you add duckduckgo.com as a default search engine, you can change the search to a wolfram|alpha search or calculation, by typing: "!wa input" in your duckduckgo search box.

I'm really glad this was updated. The old version was perfect, but this new version is very useful as well, and it's as good as it's gonna get. Though it's kind of funny that so soon after this was updated, Google Instant came out and now with W|A Google, you can't see the # of results. Not a big deal, though.

Thanks for leaving feedback. It's actually hard to find room on Google's page now as everything moves around so much now especially with Google Instant as you mentioned. I'll experiment a bit more with where to place the buttons so they don't block. Also, I've also just made it compatible with Firefox 4.0 so the early adopters can still use it.

As others are saying, it *was* a great add-on, but now it just doesn't work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Hi Danthman,
Thanks for the feedback and apologies to everyone for the delay in getting this fixed.
Please leave more feedback once you've tried the latest version.

I absolutely LOVED this add on. I was going to donate money I enjoyed and used it so much. Please fix and I'll donate $10!!

Hi Michael!
Thanks for kind words. I won't hold you to your offer ;-) but please try out the new version and let me know what you think.
I had to modify the functionality a bit to make it work with the new Google layout.
Hope you still like it!

I just noticed it no longer comes up on google searches - looks like google stole the space you were using. That of course makes this add on no longer functional. Is there a fix in the works? I used to really like this one! Was a five star extension...now it is hard to even rate.

I absolutely loved this add-in until Google just deployed their new search results page. PLEASE update this to function with the new pages...it improved my searching experience immensely.

Not work in Firefox 3.6.4

I've released version 1.1 which should work fine. It will get updated automatically in the next week or so.

Thanks for the suggestion. I hope to add localizations soon and submit to Babelzilla.

Maybe because Google keeps modifying their search pages.

Nice idea though!

One of the best extensions I've seen in a long time. It's a great idea; I don't have to go from site to site. I just works; it does what I expect it to do. Please make one for Google Chrome. For a tutorial on how to make extensions for Google Chrome go to http://code.google.com/chrome/extensions/getstarted.html.

Google Chrome version

Hi HankyUSA,
Thanks for the nice comments.
I've actually just finished converting the addon to a Chrome extension.
You can download it from here: http://code.google.com/p/wolfram-alpha-google/downloads/list
Unfortunately there seems to be an issue with the Wolfram Alpha page that causes it to not finish loading in Google Chrome (within the frame on Google). So I am trying to find a workaround but it doesn't look promising. As it is I am reluctant to add it to the Google Chrome Extensions Directory. If anyone has any ideas how to solve this problem then please let me know.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've had this extension installed for months, and while it works as advertised and it's pretty cool, truth is that my Google searches rarely have a Wolfram-Alpha equivalent, so I've only ever seen the W-A results on the right side of the screen a handful of times. But that's not the extension's fault. So I say good job to the author for the idea and to readers of this review who haven't yet installed the extension, it's worth a look, at least, so give it a download and give it a try.

One minor complaint: Please don't force users to add an icon to their statusbar - provide an option for statusbar icon OR toolbar icon. Thanks.

Option to hide Statusbar icon

Hi RenegadeX,
Thanks for the feedback. It seems Wolfram Alpha is gradually adding more content but yeah it doesn't have results for a lot of categories and could do with a lot more.

About the statusbar icon. There's a new version (1.0) available now that adds an option to hide the statusbar icon. You can get it from this page now https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/12006 or wait until it is approved by Mozilla and it will update automatically.

On Windows 7 Pro, Firefox 3.5.5 this kills most of my other Browser extensions. I ordinarily run Wordreference Translator, Gtranslate, Addblock Plus and Xmarks. When your Wolfram extension is installed, the context menu for my translate extensions goes blank, and when I try to disable your Wolfram extension, the browser crashes completely requiring a computer restart to restore it.

On the other hand, the extension is really nice, and integrates pretty smoothly into Google results. I like it, you should just make it play nicer with others.

Compatibility

Hi Mattolejack,
Thanks for posting your feedback. I've installed the same addons and I had some issues with Gtranslate (context menu is blank or is connecting to Google) but I got the same errors whether Wolfram Alpha Google was installed or not. So I don't think this is a compatibility issue. I don't have a Windows 7 machine to test this on though (tested on Vista) but I don't think that would be the issue.

I looked into the Gtranslate code a bit and there are some Javascript errors related to JSON. Perhaps the author could use Firefox's internal JSON parser instead. I also noticed that it works for some languages but then not for others. There are also more global variables than are probably necessary which can often lead to extension conflicts. Perhaps you could submit a bug on that developers website: http://code.google.com/p/gtranslate/issues/list

If you are still certain that the problem is related to Wolfram Alpha Google please email me and we can go from there.

Fantastic!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is just what I needed! Up until now it had always been a real pain having to swap between the two search engines and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered this. It is evident that the developer is putting a lot of work into this add-on and for that I think he deserves every credit that comes his way.

My one (and only gripe), is that when I search something in google and the two results come up, there is about 5cm of blank white screen to the right of the wolfram results box. Because of this, the screen feels quite squashed and off centre. This might be just me or it might be a problem that many users have. If this could be sorted or if anyone knows of a way to sort this then that would be great!!

I have one suggestion regarding the 'show scrollbar' button at the bottom of the wolfram box. To me, this seems a bit irrelevant as I always need to scroll down. Perhaps in a future update it might be worth simply automatically having the scrollbar there or having an option to have it on or off under an options tab somewhere.

To summarise - I would thoroughly recommend this add-on and a huge thank you to the developer for creating it.

New Version

Thanks Ashley for the great feedback. I've just uploaded a new version (0.9 - should be through review in the next week) that should fix the white space problem. Google had changed the page layout to move the ads closer to the regular results which messed up the positioning. Please let me know if you still see the problem on the new version. Regarding the scrollbar, I've added an option in the new version (0.9) to always show the scrollbar. It's defaulted to off for the moment so you'll need to go to the Wolfram Alpha Google Options screen (Tools-->Add-ons) to change this.

Broken? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Odd. It seems this stopped working. Perhaps with an automatic update to FF 3.5.2

I have it on a laptop, and it DID work. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Still not working.

Exactly the same with my desktop.

Still not working?

Hi Elmer, Thanks for posting the review. I've tested it on 3.5.2, 3.5.3, 3.0.13 and it seems to be working fine. I don't have XP though so if anybody else is experiencing the same issue please post a message here or send me an email. One thing that you could check is if the icon in the statusbar is red (or if there is an icon at all). If it is black just click the icon to re-enable. Other than that you could also check the Error console and see if there are any errors showing there when you load a Google page.
