Try entering:

into Google. Some of you might know what happens already, but I kicked myself when I found out how simple it is...previously it took me more than 20 minutes to find the right page that showed the right conversion tables ...

Yay for Google!

I tried 40 feet in centimeters.
G say's > 40 feet = 1 219.2 centimeters

I even tried a typo and it made the correct suggestion!

I was just wondering, as the Google toolbar is doing calculator as well, what exactly is the point of Google Beta deskbar?

Google deskbar? Is that still around, I wouldn't mind trying it. Sometimes I like to have more space for my browser window because the google toolbar eats up a bit of it (low res monitor). Maybe that's what its for. I'll give it a go if I can find it.

Works as a web dictionary as well. Try this define:google

This will yield the definition of google as the web sees it!

Google is so much more than a search engine.

I can hardly believe that they keep adding to many new features... when they're already #1! (It's not like they need to draw more clients)

The advantage the google toolbar has over the deskbar is the toolbar shows a site's pagerank whereas the deskbar does not.

I think the advantage to the deskbar is that sometimes I am working in some other software program and need to search for something quickly or make a calculation, instead of opening IE, I can just type the problem in the deskbar and a little window shows me the way. This is the only real reason I use it.
