Wolfram Alpha was launched yesterday as it is a useful complement to a general purpose search engine like Google. This search engine will never search the web, it normally searches from authoritative databases and an engine powered by Mathematical to obtain the results.
As Alpha can’t handle the queries you can use it to search simple kind of numbers, dates, words, HTML color codes, chemical formulas and you’ll get a lot of interesting information. The service shows intuitive visualizations and comparisons to better understand the information.
