Using address bar as calculator

In Chrome I can write things like 1*1.01^10 and immediately get a result back. I really miss that feature ever since I moved to Brave. In Brave I can hit enter and Google or DDG will show me the result, but I’d have to navigate away from the page I was on when I needed to do the calculation, so it isn’t nearly as seamless.

I’m new around here, how does one best request a feature like that?

@technoligarch can you try enable Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar in Brave’s Settings and see if it can solve your “issue”.


That’s exactly what I was looking for, completely overlooked the setting when I was looking for it. Thanks so much!
