    Neat, I just typed in "boiling point of 1,2-dichlorobenzene" and it changed it to "o-chlorobenzene" which is strange since it's an older naming system afaik. But, it gave the proper info. This is simple and could have been found using google but neat test.

    Also typed in some trig equations to be graphed and it did it for me too o_O I wonder if it can graph ones more complicated than sinx and sinx+2 o_O

    It can, but don't know about compositions o_O

    Very neat little search engine they have created there.

    Wow it showed the structure of myoglobin in the examples.

    But failed with succinate dehydrogenase. it showed Coenzyme Q though :( still very cool.

    I wonder what schools will say about using this for references. It could make a lot of peoples lives easier
