How simple it should  be to click on any equation while browsing through books, class notes, documents,  and instantly getting information without having to type it in (it’s most likely an image)  Symbolab Quick Search does just that for you. 

What is Quick Search?  it’s a smart browser extension that identifies equations in documents and on selection returns computation information and search results.  No toolbars, no popups, no spam, simple, clean, seamless integration.
