What is the best online calculator?

What is the best online calculator?
I have a lot of calculation tasks, and I need a good and easy-to-use online calculator.

Please help me choose a good online calculator.

I personally use Wolfram Alpha from time to time, but it does have some limitations on huge calculations without the premium account

yeah, if you see for what it is I also think wolfram alpha is ok.

For general calculation like 1364 * 576 I generally just put it into the address bar of my browser, which gives me the result through Google. For more complicated calculation, Wolfram Alpha is pretty good.

Thank you very much.

This is a good advice and I will use it in future.

Why do you want it to be online? Aren't there perfectly fine offline calculators? Confused

I use many different computers, some are Windows machines other Linux machines.
I did not bother to install a calculator for all my computers.
So it is convenient to use a online calculator.

very much depends on who you're and what you're asking for.
What kind of tools you can manage and learn?

You are :
primary student ?
secondary/high school student ?
university/college/research student (major ?)
working area/industry (scientific/IT/engineering/business/finance/accounting/marketing/specific and many many) ?

There is no one killer calculator in the world, I believe.
Sorry no answer for your question.

i do not use online calculator. I just use my blackberry phone but the problem is not much function if you are students such as sinc, alpha and other advance calculator. Its only good for basic.

I love Wolfram Alpha too and here from my list of bookmarks around "Wolfram Alpha" you might get additional ideas what type of computations you can do with it.
For some basic calculation google is a bit faster than Wolfram Alpha.

If you want more than a calculator then something like Mathematica (also by Woolfram) or the opensource equivalent - SAGE maths - is worth a look. These are much more than simple calculators, they are entire mathematical environments which will do much more than simple arithmetic.
You can have a play with sage on my site (link below).

Just enter your query in the search bar of google site, it automatically shows you a calculator, i always use google calculator to perform tasks.

I will add to the growing consensus about Wolfram Alpha. It's been great for more complex problem and calculations. However, I like having a more handheld version of a calculator because it seems like there's more tactile feedback which I like. I don't like clicking numbers on a keypad on the screen with a mouse. I could also try to use the keyboard as well, but it's harder to use the special functions like square root and square. I grew up using the smaller handheld calculators, so that may be a reason why I am biased. But I think Wolfram Alpha is great because it can do so much more than just simple arithmatic. You can draw graphs and it can look up crazy facts for you and do some crazy calculations. I used it a lot in college and graduate school.

However, I will also say that the default windows calculator is fine for most purposes. You don't really need a desktop calculator or an online calculator if you're only looking for something basic that won't take too much time to find. You can stick it on your desktop for easy access and you don't have to open your internet browser and nagivate to a site just do some simple calculations.

You can try this one http://calculator-1.com/ . I am personally using it for some times.

if you are looking for a simple calculator , u can just type the question in google search bar

This one is very nice too, although being unable to perform integrals and derivatives calculations:

Can also work as Google Chrome app.
