Wolfram Alpha Google Version History

5 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 1.1 38.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Added support for the new Google layout.
As the Google sidebar takes up a lot of room I changed the behavior of the add-on so that it replaces all the Google content.
This also means that Wolfram Alpha results do not automatically appear. You always have to click to see them but they get loaded in the background so it is fast.
Thanks to everyone for supporting this Add-on!

Version 1.0 34.8 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.6.*

- Fixed bug with Wolfram Alpha appearing on image search (thanks to Jason for reporting).
- Added option to ignore sub-domains on Google eg. mail, translate, images etc.
- Adjusted the positioning of the Wolfram Alpha box due to more changes to the Google page.
- Added option to hide the status bar icon.
- Compatible with Firefox version 3.6

Version 0.9 33.8 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.6.*

- Added option to always show the scrollbar on the Wolfram Alpha frame. Thanks to Ashley and GamefreQ for the suggestion.
- Fixed error when on Google home page. Thanks to Jorge for spotting it.
- Hid box that says "Computation Timed Out" on Wolfram results.
- Stretched the results to the right on wider screens because Google changed the layout so that it didn't stretch past 1040px. Thanks to Daniel and Zapp2me for the screenshots and Ashley for the feedback.
- Advanced Google search functions like "related:" and "inurl:" are ignored as they don't return useful results on Wolfram Alpha.

Version 0.8 34.8 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.5.*

Added an option to check the Wolfram Alpha page for any frame busters (that can redirect the Google page to Wolfram Alpha) in the background before loading into the Google page. This is slower than loading the page directly so this option is disabled by default.

Version 0.6 20.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.5.*

- Added support for right-to-left languages ex. Urdu and Arabic http://www.google.com/search?hl=ar&q=paris
- Better support for XMarks add-on: Moved Wolfram frame to the right, XMarks popup appears on top of Wolfram frame, added option to adjust the position of the Xmark icon for small screens.

If the XMarks icon is appearing on top of the Wolfram Alpha frame, go to the Firefox Tools menu, choose Add-ons, find Wolfram Alpha Google and click the Options button and tick the checkbox for "Adjust XMark icons for small screens" and choose OK. This will show the XMark icon above the result instead of to the right whenever the Wolfram frame is showing.
