Kagi Search – Public Beta
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Jun 2022
I'm in the same boat and will pay for Kagi, though I have a different interaction with a search engine and thought you might like the counterpoint. Notably, I don't use Google for most of what you described:
Translation: I use DeepL instead (google is doing poorly on Asian languages)
Conversion: not having much need for imperial but I use this for all unit conversion (though usually directly in my terminal): https://insect.sh/
Wikipedia: if I type Wikipedia+something my browser automatically use the wiki engine (chrome can do that too)
Word definition: on OSX I long press on the trackpad and the definition pops up (across languages, translation too for single words)
Lyrics: Spotify show them now! (admittedly that's a recent feature)

the urls this generates don't seem to work: 2 min + 30 s creates https://insect.sh/?q=2+min+%2B+30+s which turns into 2 min × 30 × s3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Mar 2022
Show HN: All desktop calculators are wrong, so I had to build my own
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Mar 2022
I recommend https://insect.sh (you can install it through NPM to use it locally). Does simple maths well, does functions, does units, does conversions... pretty cool shell calculator.

For terminal calculations I have been using insect: it's awesome.
