New Extension Puts Wolfram Alpha's Peanut Butter in Google's Chocolate

Lifehacker links to an experimental Firefox extension which inserts answers from Wolfram Alpha into your Google searches. While Wolfram Alpha hasn't exactly set the Internet on fire, it does provide an interesting results when your questions have a mathematical slant. Because of this, Wolfram Alpha is less an alternative to an Internet search engine and more of a complement. That's the beauty of this extension. This add-on makes the Google page a bit too wide for my netbook's small screen but it should look nice on PCs with higher resolution screens. It should make a good addition to your search arsenal.
