Hey... It was just 2 days ago that I learned to make the most out of Google search. It has numerous capabilities than a mere search... and also has several search options.

# As a calculator - Perform arithmetic operations and hit the search button to get the outcome.

# As a converter - Convert any unit to any other unit (Currency, units of measurement, etc.)
# Question & Answer - Type a query such as "population of USA", and it gives the answer.

There is lot more... Read them from the net.
