Google do not offers a search engine with the same facility from year to year. Google is always adding new facilities in their search engine. The goal is clear to make users more comfortable using google and did not switch to another search engine.

You can use Google Search to ask something and get the answer directly. For example type 5*5 and press Enter then you will get 5*5=25. Type 10.5 cm in inches and you will get 4.13385827 inches. Type Define communication and you will get definication of communication. Another example you can take a look at Google Search Features
