Google's Calorie Counter, Not Just for Voice Search

Google's Calorie Counter, Not Just for Voice Search: When Google started to answer questions about nutrition, I wondered why the new feature was limited to voice search. Sure, you could use it in Android, iOS and even in Chrome for desktop, but why not show the same results in the regular search interface?

Now you can search for [how many calories are in popcorn?], [steak calories], [how much vitamin a is in a carrot?] and many other similar queries from any browser. Just type the query and you'll get an interactive info card and a long list of nutrition facts.
