What's it all MEAN?

You know, one of the neat things about Google is that it's kinda got a built-in dictionary. Or at least it makes it easy for you to check on the meaning of words. All you do is type in "define:" and voila, you turn up a list of search results for the word you're looking for. It's pretty neat.

Plus, Google search has kinda a built-in calculator thing going. Try typing "square root(4225) - 33" into the search box and see what you get.

One of the reasons I like Firefox is the search bar. By default, Firefox uses Google as its web
search engine, so it means you can use the same searches you would use on the Google homepage, and it works exactly the same way.
