Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

That's really wonderful! I heard so much about Wolfram Alpha which is huge rival but I don't compare it with Google. Now with this add-on I did! Thanks so much! I think we should add this add-on on default browser! :D

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

Thanks

Great to hear that you liked the add-on. There is no greater praise for an add-on developer than people wanting it in the default browser ;-)

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works brilliantly, without slowing down my google search results as I feared it wold. I love that it brilliantly waits for google to finish loading before loading Wolfram separately. This saves SO much time for me so I don't have to go to Wolfram Alpha separately, and google is my default search engine. I have a HUGE monitor, so usually the google pages are blank on the right side (adblock) and now theres something to make the pages seem less blank and a bit more perfect. I think the scrollbar should be enabled by default though, and I shouldn't have to scroll down the page to see other content, and it should be a bit more optimized for people with larger resolution screens such as 1680x1050 because there is a ton of space to the left side which could be utilized. Other than that, Brilliant! I noticed you replied to many of the reviews, which lets me know you're a serious developer which cares about the feedback. That earns my respect.

Large monitors and scrollbars

Thanks GamefreQ for taking the time to write a review. I think it's hard for everyone to move away from Google even when we know the results for some types of searches might be better on other engines. This way we don't have to change our default and the other engine comes to us ;-). I've just released a new version (currently being reviewed but should be out in the next week) that adds an option to always show the scrollbar. I set the default to off for the moment so if you want to use this feature you'll need to go to Tools-->Add-ons-->Wolfram Alpha Google and click Options. I still haven't figured out a nice way to support extra large monitors. I think what I'll do is to add an option so that you can add xxx pixels padding to the right of the Wolfram results. Not ideal but it would solve the problem.

Just great! Really makes life easy by rolling both sides of the same coin onto one page. You can almost consider this tool a Super Search Engine.

Great idea and great implementation, dev!

Thank you for the encouragement Christian. It's nice to get such positive comments :-)

Wolfram hijacking Google results? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Extension worked quite well until...

After running a Google search, the results page shows Google results in customary fashion on the left while a throbber works next to the Wolfram|Alpha designation on the right side.

When the throbber finishes and the Wolfram results are generated, I'm taken to the WolframAlpha page and any trace of Google is gone. The back button is not even available in order to return to the Google page.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Wolfram hijacking Google results

Hi Richard,
I just noticed the problem as well. It looks like Wolfram Alpha changed their code so that it won't show in a frame. I've released a new version that will disable the add-on until I can find a work-around. It's currently in the review queue but it should be available shortly. You can also disable the add-on by clicking on the Wolfram Alpha icon in the status bar. It's strange that a change like this would happen on a weekend. The Wolfram team must be working overtime ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

cool but slow, i guess its because of the wolfram alpha's default speed. I like it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Thanks

Thanks for the review. I know it can be slow at times. There is not a lot I can do from my end to make it faster though. It really comes down to how quickly Wolfram can return the results.

Display is odd Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When I load the dual search results, the Wolfram result is to the right, but the Google result is pushed to below the Wolfram result , half-way down the page. Not sure how to fix this. Could someone let me know? This is a really cool extension. I'd hate to uninstall it over something like this, but it is pretty annoying.

Display Issue

Hi Ben. There were more issues like this in the earlier versions of this add-on but they should be fixed in the latest version (0.6). Could you check if this is the version you have? If you have the latest version it would help if you could tell me your screen resolution or post a screenshot of what it looks like and post an example URL where you see this problem. There could also be a conflict with another extension that modifies the Google page. Do you have anything installed like this? If you are using XMarks there is an Option (Tool->Add-ons->Wolfram Alpha Google->Options) that should help with problems like this.
Otherwise, a workaround is to click on the original button so that Wolfram won't show unless you click on it.

google account bug2 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Excellent idea, works fine until you're logged to your google account (as reported previously). Then a google search is like a ...standard google search (no wolfram search at all)

Google Account Bug

Hi Valralf. I've tried using a regular Gmail account and a Google Apps for your domain account to replicate this and still no luck. If you could provide more information like the URL that you used when you did the search or any errors in the error console or the source code of the Google page when you are logged in then I should be able to fix this problem. Without something more to go on I won't be able to fix this problem.

Just needs a few trimmings to make it perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension does what it says on the tin. In future releases I'd like it to be much more like googlepedia meaning the results are full page length without needing to scroll. The status bar icon would be helpful if it was optional with a simple option in the options of the addon to turn it off and on. Also, when I installed the addon it seemed to shrink my status bar icons to a smaller size and now I don't know how to revert them back to normal size (I'm guessing this may be a bug or be caused by the icon supplied between too small).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Feature suggestions

Hi Michael. Thanks for your feedback. I've tried a few different ways to get the full page to show (like Googlepedia) but haven't figured this one out yet. I agree that this would improve the add-on a lot. The optional status bar icon is a good idea. I'll add this one in the next version. I'm not sure what's happening with the smaller status bar icons. Do you have a screenshot? Status bar icons are normally 16x16px (same as the Wolfram Alpha icon) and you can't change the size like in the toolbar so I'm not sure how this could happen. Any other information that you could give about this would be a big help.

Funktioniert ganz hervorragend; braucht manchmal etwas Zeit bis das Ergebnis steht, aber parallel kann man ja schon einmal die google-Treffer durchsehen.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Thanks

Thanks Hermann. It can take some time to load but this is basically a problem with Wolfram Alpha itself. The request to load the Wolfram Alpha page happens as soon as Google finishes loading and then it will appear once it finishes loading. It's possible to start the request earlier but this could slow down the Google results so I would rather not do this.

Doesn't work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Using FF 2.0.0.20 and WinXP and this addon does nothing at all, nothing shows up when doing a Google search and going to Tools>Addons and trying to access the extensions options causes the addons window to lock up. Have disabled all other extensions and still no go.

I know FF2.0.0.20 is an old version but if it doesn't work with it might I suggest stating FF3 only to save FF2 users downloading it.

Not working with FF2.0.0.20

Hi John, Thanks for letting me know about this. I installed FF 2.0.0.20 on Windows Vista and had the same problem. I haven't found the cause of it yet so for the meantime I have changed the supported versions to be 3.0~3.5.* as you suggested. It appears this affects about 60 people so apologies for not picking up on this earlier.

Thank you for making this addon and being so responsive on the reviews page as well! This is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for to help double check my calculus work with ease. It's always nice seeing developers spending their time adding useful addons like this to the community.

Thanks Phil for the support. I can imagine it would be great for maths (calculus etc.) and science (the taxonomy info is great for biologists) students. What do you and your students use it for?
