Calculator Bar

Need a quick an easy way to see what two plus two is? I am pretty sure the answer is still four – but I could be wrong. That is why I like to have the Calculator Bar handy. This Firefox extension gives you one of those “number adding machines” on top of your status bar.

Then again, if you don’t want to bother with an extension you could always just type 1+1 into that Google search box on the search bar. After doing that, you should get the answer you are looking for as well.

You see – two tips in one post, I am all about giving you the goods.

Instant Calculator

Reader Jerry points out that Firefox 2’s suggest-as-you type Google search box is an instant calculator. Simply type your mathematical formula into the search box (Alt-K Cntrl-K to get there quick) and you’ll get your answer even before you hit the equals sign. Awesome.
