Math wizards take note. Chromey Calculator is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser that offers access to most of Wolfram|Alpha’s and Google’s mathematical calculations and functions.
The extension places one of those dreaded icons in the Google Chrome header that opens a popup window when clicked on.
Here it is then possible to perform calculations and conversions easily. Supported among others are for instance:
Chromey Calculator adds three core features to the power of the two calculators:
* Last result can be accessed using the “@” variable.
* Create your own user variables — @abc_123 = 42
* Store an unevaluated expression — @x := 10 meters
* Use up/down arrow keys to access input history.
* Click on any result to insert it into the input area.
* Ctrl+Click or Cmd+Click (OS X) on any result to copy to clipboard.
* Click the little arrow at the upper right to pop out to new window.
* Hover over the the empty space to the left of any result to reveal a
“G” or “W” link. Click the link to see the original source of a result in
Google or Wolfram|Alpha.
Chromey Calculator can be downloaded and installed from the Google Chrome Extensions Gallery.
