Wolfram|Alpha is designed very well. It’s simple to use, yet elegant. It looks a lot better than Google. Kudos for the great work!

Simply amazing – questions that I never expected gave me accurate results.

It’s not Google and will never replace Google because they are two different beasts – they will sit side by side until Google buys it :)

Great work guys and gals.

You guys have done an amazing Job!

The design is so simple and powerful. Very well designed! I hope to see it and its central database grow. Will definitely be using this in the future.

I give a 100% to Wolfram Alpha design and presentation. Just says a lot when you look at what you guys have put in place, with respect to the functionality also!

Mia, please please please will you add the buttons at the top of the home page to ALL the pages that they link to, so that it’s easier to navigate back and forth. This has been suggested by myself and others, in the community archive and the participate sections, to no avail.
I realize eveyone at w|a is busy adding data and functionality to the site, but this is a basic design issue that could be easily addressed. Aside from that I think the site looks great! Nice work on those polyhedrons, by the way. :)
